I think I'd have prefered a 44 mag or larger! 454 maybe or a 500! The 45 did do the job though although I bet the pucker facter was high!!

I think I would have preferred a sturdy .44 Magnum ala a Super Redhawk or Raging Bull and these:

GARRETT'S 44 MAG HAMMERHEAD AMMO
$100 / 50 CTGS

330-GR SUPER-HARD-CAST GC LONG-HAMMERHEAD AT 1400-FPS

THIS 44 MAGNUM AMMO IS RECOMMENDED FOR USE IN RUGER AND DAN WESSON DOUBLE-ACTION REVOLVERS, AS WELL AS THE TAURUS RAGING BULL. IT IS ALSO RECOMMENDED FOR THE GARY REEDER 5-SHOT ULTIMATE 44 MAGNUM, AND THE JOHN GALLAGHER CUSTOM LONG-CYLINDER RUGER SINGLE-ACTIONS. THIS AMMO SHOULD BE FIRED ONLY IN THOSE RECOMMENDED REVOLVERS! THIS AMMO IS BOTH TOO LONG AND GENERATES TOO MUCH CHAMBER PRESSURE FOR SAFE USE IN S&W AND RUGER SUPER BLACKHAWK REVOLVERS. IT IS ALSO TOO LONG FOR USE IN THE FREEDOM ARMS REVOLVER.

ENERGY: 1440 FT/LBS; TAYLOR KNOCKOUT VALUE: 28; MEPLAT: .320"; CHAMBER PRESSURE: 43,500-CUP; SECTIONAL DENSITY: .255; TRAJECTORY: +2" @ 50-YDS; ZERO @ 100-YDS; -7" @ 150-YDS
I shoot the [email protected] in my 629s but really NOT fun in the 3" Tail Boss. I shoot the [email protected] in my 45/70. Good stuff for anything in North America!

He got the job done with the 45, if there is a next time the 10mm will be better! Hopefully there won't be a next time!

I have a series of books called "Alaska Bear Tales" and several others, used to read them to the kids by the camp fire, I have a very healthy respect for any bear and keep my distance. Oh, and carry my 45/70 when in bear country.
