Nice looking bears.

I just saw I screwed up on my bullet weights. I didnt test with a 135gr it was a 235gr TC. And with a heavy load it penatrated ALMOST the same in wet phonebooks as a 45 colt and a 315gr WFN and 24gr of 110.

As for a WFN not feeding in a 45ACP, it would be trial and error. The Lee 200gr FN feeds great in everything we've tried it in and they dont come with a bigger meplat that I've seen, though 200gr is too light.

It wouldnt be ideal, but I know a man in Alaska that has killed 2 bears with a 45 ACP and wont carry anything else because of quick recovery time.
