UGH!!! Me not know which bullet to load fer bear!!! My main concern is PERFORMANCE ON GAME. Cost, looks, and nats ***** accuracy aren't that important to me, as there will not be any long range shots. Leaning towards the Kodiak, love the fact that they are Alaskan. Like the Hawk idea of soft lead and jacket for a "flowing" mushroom effect. Sierra is last resort, as I have personally seen jacket separation with my own tests. I drilled Mr. spike/fork with three 440 hardcast from Ranger Rick two seasons ago, two pass through and the third opened to .860" and lost no weight. Perfect performance, yet I still somehow think there needs to be jacketed, high dollar slugs exiting my barrel.
