44 magnum vrs Black Bear

I'm going on my first bear hunt this September and I'm very excited. Part of my whole ritual is preparing in every way. I'll be using a 44 magnum revolver and we'll be hunting with dogs in North Eastern Tennessee, so I don't expect to take a bear larger than 250-300 lbs. I also expect to be shooting from ground to tree.

From now till then I want to use the same ammo at my range that I'm going to use on my hunt so that I can completely familiarize myself with the round. But I need some advice from you guys as to what that round should be.

I'm almost sold that I should be using a heavy JSP.

If people with experience could offer advice on brand names of bullets, casings, primers, Grain count and what ever else I need, I would be very grateful.
