We're planning to hunt Sitka Blacktail this fall on Kodiak Island. I never hunted on Kodiak before and I'm curious what everbody's opinions would be on which of my guns to take? I'm not sure if my decision should lean more towards long range accuracy (.300 WM) or more towards bear medicine (.375 Ruger).
I have a .300 win mag in Ruger M77, blued barrel, synthetic stock, Leupold Vari-X III 3.5-10x50 mm, tuned to shoot 5/8" groups at 100 yards.
I also have a new Ruger Guide Gun in .375 Ruger, matt stainless barrel, lami stock, scope is undetermined yet (most likely Leupold though).
What would be your choice and why?
Thanx in advance!
