I know many have weighed in with there opinions on the previous thread, but I have a bit more specific question for you all. Has anyone used A Square ammo for bear protection?
I currently live in Washington state and am hoping to move up your way by next year. My wife and two sons and I lived in Homer for a summer two years ago and absolutely loved it. I've found work this year with two different outfitters packing for spring brown bear and fall sheep/moose to start on my guide apprenticeship. Anyways, the outfitter says to bring a 338 win mag, so I've purchased a ruger hawkeye 338 with a Leupold vx3 1.5-5.
I've looked at ammo and will only shoot the super reliable stuff (Barnes X, Trophy Bonded Bear Claw, Swift A-Frame) and have come across A Square ammo. It seems to be loaded for African stuff, but offers factory loads in 250 grain, Lion, Dead Tuff and Monolithic Solid. For the purpose of carrying a rifle while packing (ie, close encounter, life and death, brown bear/grizz stuff) its seems ideal. Just wondering if anyone has actual experience with these bullets, loads. thanks a bunch.
