Does anyone know if a 30-06 can take down a bear, such as a Grizzly?

Yeah it can. Probably wouldn't be my first choice.
I don't need No stinking signature.
It has been done and more than once. I would use the 220 grain loads.

I am not older than dirt but the rocks were bigger and there were more of them when I was a kid.
umm 50 bmg,just kidding wouldent a 10 gauge shooting slugs be ideal
Anything bigger you might have.
I wish you the very best of luck in your bear-killing endevours. Don't forget the .44mag backup revolver, JIC. Becoming food for the bear means YOU have become a part of the problem, at least until it poops.
Dead Bears, the only good kind.
Thanks for all the advice, now I gotta head to the range and sight in the new x-bolt for my hunt next week
A 30-06 is a hell of a lot more powerful than a 44 mag.
