Re: Daughter's Bear Hunt
My 19 year old son used a .30-06 with a 165 gr Nosler Solid Base last fall. It did a fine job, although the bear needed a few more shots to convince it to stop running...
That 165 in the lungs would have killed it just fine, but not before it covered some country.
Have her bust it in the shoulders, with a GOOD 165, like a Nosler Partition maybe. Especially at shorter ranges.
Enjoy the hunt, it should be terrific! Guy
