I am starting to consider hunting brown bear with my Ruger Super Redhawk 7.5 inch . The two loads I have are 240 grain hornaday xtp at 1900 and underwood hard cast 360 at 1425
My shot should be around 25 yards . I am leaning towards the 240 grain because it is a bonded bullet and should open up at that speed and thinking shoot right behind the shoulder, in the lungs and hopefully destroy the kungs so they dont go to far,
Or shoot the 360 in the shoulder and hope broken bone does some damage .
I have shot a lot of black bear but they are not the same class of animal in build. This came up as my son was mentioning hunting admirality island with a 454.
