The fact is that an Alaskan Brown Bear is 1,000 pounds, large bones, thick skull, heavy muscles, and requires a lot of stopping power. A 12-guage with slugs should be the minimum for someone wanting to pack light, yet effectively. Yes, you can kill an elephant with a .22 in the ear, but you're stupid to try it. In a handgun, .357 Magnum as a minimum, .44 Magnum or something like the .454 Casull, but what you really want is a partner on watch with the big rifle.
