I shot a 3/8" spinning target that I have shot 100's of times with 158 gr JSP ammo once with a 200 grain cast bullet. After that shot I was hauling my target up to the shop to weld up the hole in it. I wouldn't want to take on any animal that will try to turn me into a bloody pulp with any handgun.

We all have watched those TV shows were Mr Super Hunter has killed a large bear or moose with a handgun or bow. There is a guide just out of camera range with an adequate rifle. Don't go out alone to piss in any bear's cornflakes with just a handgun. Make sure you have a back up shooter with a rifle.
