Ahh... I knew it couldn't be a real "bear gun" thread without jmr40 posting inaccurate, 30 year-old data.
The study was not done by the Alaska Dept of Wildlife. It was conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest region.
The data in that study is 30 years old. It is no more applicable to this scenario than the price of a gallon of gasoline 30 years ago. Every piece of information in that study is inaccurate when compared to modern-day factory ammunition.
jmr40, please stop posting that study. It has zero relevance to today's modern factory ammo.
