I want to hunt with this little gem, and I want to hunt black bear. They don't get too big aroud here, and I don't mind tracking a bit. It's a great size for the hills and is scoped for a good shot. I don't plan on shooting far. I'm generayy a bow hunter and feel comfortable getting closer than some might, for a good shot.
Your pistol will do a fine job on black bear. A 140 Nosler Accubond pushed by a stiff dose of H 335 for around 2600 fps or a 154 Hornady Spire Point Interlock with a stiff does of IMR 4064 for around 2400 fps would be about perfect.
