I'm taking my son on a SE coastal black bear hunt this may. We are planning on hunting with ML's with a .338 as a back up. We have considerable experience hunting large whitetails with ML's, but zip on black bears. Two questions...
1.) We were planning on using our standard load of 2x50 777 pellets and 250gr T/C shockwave sabots in a T/C Triumph 50 cal. This has been a great load for accuracy. I could go to 3x50 pellets, but have not seen much improvement in energy and have had accuracy drop off. Interested in your comments.
2.) We're flying into Petersburg and I want to order pellets / primers to be shipped there ahead of time since we can't fly with them. I've got a place that will receive the shipment, but am interested in what companies you can order from. I don't think Cabela's ships there. Anyone use someone else? Sportsmans Warehouse? Gander Mtn?
Appreciate any advice.
