I just picked up a 458 SOCOM that I'll be carrying with me when camping/hiking/hunting/etc in the western part of the state. The browns over there aren't quite Kodiaks, but they're still pretty good size. There are also wolves and other critters to be concerned about which is why I went with the higher capacity semi-auto.
These are what I have to play with so far... need some opinions on them. I'm sure a lot of people here are using a 45-70 for dangerous game, and the SOCOM will give me similar ballistics.
300gr TTSX (probably for hunting more than defense)
400gr Original Flat Nose
Am I on the right track with these, or should I be looking more towards the 330gr banded solid or something similar?
