Why wouldn’t you use a 12 gauge slug? Just curious

because they are soft and dont deliver a lot of energy.check with any true expert guide and they will tell you not a good combo.phil shoemaker who knows as much or more than anyone who has ever guided and hunted the big bears has explained this to many.others who know there way around big bears will tell you the same.

Is it a true one power scope on the low end?

I tried several 1 to 4 or 6 power scopes before I found one that was actually a true one power low end, the difference was immediately visible.

Had it on a little 44mag revolving carbine, on one power you had a full, big, bright picture with BOTH eyes open, incredibly fast sight acquisition, incredibly fast.

I would think it would be a stellar choice for going in after something that may fight back and I hope that Zeiss is, may provide that extra 100th of a second that saves a life or two.

Personally, it sounded like you were in a great place to excuse yourself from other responsibilities and get a double rifle, would've sold about everything and ate Ramen to go that route myself. No scope, just the shallow v rear with a big ole brass or white dot front, no frills, just unforgiving death.

But it looks like you've got about 5200 ft/lbs of death being thrown out of that setup, hope to read about some animals taken with it.

It is about as good of a 1 power as I’ve ever looked through.
Double is not for me in this area.
A couple bear guys had them and got rid of them.
I’m confident in my choice.
In truth I hope I never have to use it in a defensive situation
