What do you guys think of using a 30-378 wby for a brown bear hunt in either Alaska or Russia?

Do you think I should step up to a 338 or 375 class caliber or do I have enough horsepower with the 30-378?

Thanks in advance

A lot of brownies have been taken with the standard 300 Win Mag using 200gr Partitions.
If you can shoot this round accurately I say go for it. Premium 200+ grain bullets a must.

It would not be my caliber of choice, but I would not hesitate using it if the oportunity should arise while I was carrying it.

A whole lot of Brownies have been taken and continue to be taken with a 30-06. Phil Shoemaker ( a Bear Guide of some repute) has used and continues to do so at times use a 30-06 as his back up rifle.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
