Default RE: What ammo for Bear?

For black bear, any load you hunt deer with will work. .44 mag using 240gr.JHP work well and will kill a bear hands down. Shot placement is the key. I took my first bear with a Marlin 336 in .44 mag using 240 JHP. For grizzly, I use a 45-70 540gr Garrett's hammerheads +P out of a Marlin 1895G Guide gun.
