    Extreme bear! Congrats!

    If its skull is over 28", you should register it with B&C.

    More details? Where were you (roughly)? Where did you hit it? At what range? Did you pursue it? More details please!

    How large was it's rear pads. From heal to tip of toe minus the claw? I'm making a spreadsheet.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Ackley mucked around with more than 7x57, 308, and 30-06 parent cases. Similar deal, though - minimal case taper and a sharp shoulder. Enviro could probably tell you if there's a change in neck length, since the belted ackley case doesn't need to crush/headspace on fireforming like the rimless cases do. I'd guess the neck is similar in length.

    What a bear! Congrats on a wonderful trophy and I'm sure experience! The smile tells the best part of the story, but what's the rest of it?
