Does anyone know if a 30-06 can take down a bear, such as a Grizzly?
50 bmg would actually be an excellent choice.umm 50 bmg,just kidding wouldent a 10 gauge shooting slugs be ideal
Orangello always comes up with the most novel solutions.Maybe wipe some bacon grease on one of the other hunters.
Generally harder to holster or one-hand, though. "back up"/BUG/"my leg is becoming an horsdevour"
There are 4 good choices here, for a backup, 3 of which are actually better than the 44 --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.
You missed the whole point however.A 30-06 is a hell of a lot more powerful than a 44 mag.
If you don't get at least three other signatures on your scorecard, the round doesn't count, and you may have to re-bear.You missed the whole point however.
Besides your rifle, with 3 + 1 loaded, you would also want a heavy sidearm, and a buddy next to you with all of the same. At least.
3 buddies together would be even better. As would 4.
