Buy a 30-06, load it with 200-220 gr Nosler partitions or a 180 gr Barnes TTSX.

Read this.

These are recomendations from the Alaska game and fish dept on bear defense. According to their tests the only rounds that outperformed the heavy loaded 30-06 were 375 mags. and larger. Several others have duplicated these tests and came to the same conclusion.

The 300 mags tied the 30-06 in performance at closer ranges and only offered an advantage at long range. The 30-06 out penetrated everything between .30-.375, including 338 mag, 45-70, 444, and 35 Whelen.
