The 240 gr bullets are nothing to sneeze at, that is the "standard" weight for .44 mag and has been used for lots of hunting. However if bear is a possibility then the 300 gr would be better yet. BUT, I would go with the heaviest bullet with a cannelure. It is important to get a good crimp in a heavy recoiling cartridge. Ideally a 300 gr hardcast lead or semi-jacketed soft point.
