    Default Big enough for a Brown bear...

    For all the threads related to asking the proverbial question, "is it big enough for a brown bear", this one is big enough...

    I am glad they had sense to mount the scope forward! Quite the round...

    More often than not the issue isn't not enough gun, it's not enough shooter.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Pretty Fun to watch,....jumping right outta their hands,... some of them anyway, WOW

    I wonder what the stats are on that round, velocity and such, or what it does to a chunk of steel at 100 yards

    I only watched it once but I think they said 2400gr bullet at 2100fps with 240gr of powder. I also think they said something like 25,000 foot pounds of energy, way to much for me...

    Mark, I didn't want to tell you before the McMillian long-range shooting school in April, however, since you're my partner, I have one waiting for you out in Phoenix. It will be fun to shoot this prone! You're my guest, so you go first....!

    I still think the Anzio Iron Works mag fed 20mm is the shiznitz.

    Just think of all the time you would save with one of these guns......no pesky walking or stalking, and......it will turn it into hamburger for you.
