Ursus horribilus is dangerous game, I use the African standard for that category. .375 H&H minimum, or a rifle caliber starting with a "4". There is a reason why the .375 H&H is the minimum in Africa for the unarmored big cats, you can get killed not using enough gun.
+1, that is the minimum for many guides as well in Alaska. Folks have killed grizzlies/browns with much less, but the issue is a hunt turned into a defensive action after the first shot. Many accounts of hunters killed by the bear that they killed.
