I don't know if I would have the pelotas to shoot a grizzly with a cap and ball 44, especially considering what Larry Kelly (founder of Mag-Na-Port) told about his meeting with a grizzly in a little survival shack in Alaska. Long story short, 44 mag 6" revolver with super-hot loads, 6 shots into a grizzly at contact to maybe 6" range, absolutely no discernible effect. But the bear did retreat from the shack, which was what he wanted to begin with. His guide finished the bear with 2 shots from a 375 H&H. It's on the internet, somewhere.
