    Default 270 gr SP-RP vs 300 gr RN vs 300 gr FMJ-RN

    Any opinions on the best ammo for brown bear of the three Hornady currently makes for the 375 Ruger?

    On their site here's what they say about them (below). I wasn't sure if I needed the Full Metal Jacket or not.

    1. 270 gr SP-RP, Perfect for longer shots up to 300 yards.

    2. 300 gr RN, Expanding bullet that transfers energy quickly and creates a large wound cavity while delivering excellent penetration.

    3. 300 gr FMJ-RN, Jacketed bullet that penetrates the toughest hides in the world--first time.

    #2 the 300 gr RN, Expanding bullet. Should be ideal for bears and moose and I have had very good luck accuracy wise with the Hornady round nose bullets.

    I think their Dangerous game series is way to tough for our AK game animals unless you plan on a butt hole shot………………… Other wise, we simply don’t need that much penetration.

    #2. The 300 grain round nose soft point is definately a winner. It is a great lion and bear bullet too.
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?
