I don't hunt bears. We have plenty of them in Wyoming, But they are rather shy creastures, and easy to avoid if a bit of common sense is used. I can see no reason to shoot one. Especally at 300 yards.

From what I have seen up here, the hunters who hunt 'any bear' use much bigger guns with almost double the grain weight in said bullets for a reason. It is against the law up here to wound a bear and leave it. Is the op willing to go into a thicket and look for the bear with that gun?
Agreed! If I was going to hunt Browns in AK, my first choice would probably be either a .375 H&H or a lever action v.45-70 with heavy handloads.

A good brown bear load is the new .375 ruger.

Excellent for elk. I've seen it used plenty of times. Would work for bear as well, just use a good bullet.
