Look outside the 9 dots. If you want to hunt bear, and I would, I would grab one of my 6.8 SPCII uppers. I have both 16" 6.8 X 43 with 1 in 11.25" twist with 5R rifling, or the 18" Bison Armament 6.8 SPC II with 1: 11 twist and 4 grove rifling. Both have the better specs and can spit out a 100 gr 270 caliber bullet at around 2800 to 2900 fps. It's a step up from 5.56 and has the thump down range to drop deer and pigs.
