yes mighty i mean slugs if i were to go after a bear on purpose i would be carrying a rifle most likely my h&r in 45-70[:D]wayne
I have been hunting bear in PA with a 7mm-08 remington and 150 grain bullets. I havent had a shot at one yet but i thought i had enough gun. Dad has a 300 savage. Should i ask to borrow it during bear season?

I know a lot of guys in Northern Wisconsin that use the .30-30 regularly. I've personally never bear hunted, but wouldn't feel undergunned with a .30-30 or a .243. It's all about shot placement, even with bears, if you hit them somewhere vital, they're gonna die.
[hr]Yes ... which is all the more reason to carry a back-up weapon ... my new first choice back up weapon after reading the Thread: Should Woman Be Jailed for Killing Fawn?
is a long handled shovel.
Well then you may get mauled...for you left out the most deadly part of that weapon...the woman...[;)]

A .270 might work, but my opinion is that anything under a .30 caliber bullet and you are pi$$ing in the wind. 100% agree that .308 is the minimum for black bears. .30-06 is better. It doesn't make sense to be undergunned for something that could possibly take you out if the initial shot was not as good as it needed to be.
