Re: Favorite Dangerous Game Round

That bullet isn't designed for that kind of velocity. The 375 gr TSX would work pretty good I think tho. I've had the 350 gr Hornady RN disintegrate on deer when pushed from the 458 win mag. Made a gross mess. And I was loading it below 2500fps .

I know the flex tip was not designed for high velocity but sometimes the rockchucks you are shooting require more velocity to leave this world in a spectacular fashion. I use my big bores on varmints all year long and pistol bullets are cheap and available. Try a 275 grain barnes pistol bullet in a 50 cal at over 3400 fps on a black bear and you will be amazed how fast it will die

. I have shot the 300 gr Barnes original from my 500. The noise from it cutting the air was amazing. .

Re: Favorite Dangerous Game Round

I have a 9.3x62 in a pre-64 model 70, still in the factory wood stock. Also got two big bores; a 375 h and h and .416 Remington, both are the Safari Model 70's. I think any of the 3 are certainly capable of killing any pissed off critter. Good bullets in the right spot....I also think sometimes guys don't give enough thought to follow up shots. You need enough rifle to get the job done, but with managable enough recoil that you can get a quick 2nd shot if need be.

The 9.3 has a tremendous amount of killing power with recoil that is not much more than a 30-06.

Re: Favorite Dangerous Game Round

For way up close the 416 is the best for flattening them of the 3 . The 375 H+H I'd a great standard. The 9.3x62 Mauser with a 250 gr bullet at 2500 fps closely duplicates the 375 . .
With brown bear anyway.

The trick is to get real close to them. Under 50 feet is great ..
