.454 Casull and Grizzly Defense

Cast at 16 bhn - 20 bhn, how effective would this .454 bullet be at these given velocities against an above average size grizzly bear??

350 grain WFN.....16.5/2400 30,000 CUP 1590 fps

350 grain WFN.....24/H110 48,000 CUP 1610 fps

350 grain WFN.....26/H110 53,000 CUP 1715 fps

"My plea is that we stop seeking out the storm and enjoy more fully sunlight. I am suggesting that as we go through life we accentuate the positive. I am asking that we look a little deeper for the good, that we still our voices of insult and sarcasm, that we more generously compliment and endorse virtue and effort." Gordon B. Hinckley

I'm not sure if you're looking for this, but I'd definitely go with 2400 in those said loads, as less powder = less recoil and the velocity difference isn't enough to concern yourself with.

"Shootability": Control of recoil, such that you can be fast AND accurate.
