Rim Rock Bullets out of Ronan, Mt provides all my bullets for my .44 Magnum loadings and for my 45-70 loadings.
I load this bullet over 15.5 gr of 2400 with a CCI 300 primer
Notice the nice wide flat meplat of that bullet
While bowhunting last year with my son, this is a picture of the black bear that got away because of the distance I would have had to shoot my arrow. Had I of been hunting with a handgun in the area that I was hunting this would have been mounted in my home just like this.
Again, cast bullets is the only way to go
Now there are areas that bigger bears exist here in Montana and here is a picture of a grizzly that was hit by a US Forestry truck outside of Linclon, Mt as it crossed the highway...... You can run into these while out in the woods, and yes cast bullets are a must.
