Not wrong in asking, But your train of thought has the attention span of a nat.
You have run the gambit of calibers for elk. I have given you my thoughts on Grizzly. You need a big nasty rifle w/ open sights. 9.3x62 is not that nasty! I don't care what anyone says, if a bear is charging a 286gr++ is in order. Unless you are hunting them, you are food.
Easier to find a new area. If you shoot an elk, and start towards it and a griz walks out, who will win? Don't be stupid. Walk away slowly and don't hunt alone.
