I am not a bear hunter, but I would say any one of those would do just fine. Given the choice though, I would probably take the 30/30 or the .308.

Oh, and go HOKIES!

People routinely take them with .357 magnum revolvers. Any of the rifles you mentioned should be fine.

I've taken
2 with Rem Mag 7mm
1 with a 50 cal muzzle loader
1 with a bow


Shot placement is the key to a quick kill. Most cal will work, you just want to make sure were you hit the vitals. A poor shot even with a big bore and you'll have a hard time finding your bear.
Good luck.
