Reloader 22 @ 91.0
225gr Swift A frame
Suggest stay with 225gr weight bullets recoil is excessive with 250 or heavier. The 225gr Nosler Part or Barnes TTSX is also excellent. Very flat shooting and good bullet retention on heavy large game...
I have a ample supply of the old Barnes Orginal 250gr FN and Hornady 200gr FN for my 348 win.
I also have some 245gr Hardcast gas checked that I have never shot. RL 19 has given me gear results in my 1953 Win 71.
My late taxidermist had to use a Grizzly skull for the Rug. I have seen 3 bigger since 1994 in interior Alaska while hunting but let them walk now it’s over $200 a foot to get rug made ! The biggest black bear I have ever seen actually came out of a NC swamp.
I tested the 265 FN in my 4” with 21.0 of H110 with mag primers got a lot of residue. I think the powder is too slow for a 4” to burn completely.
I am going to try HP-38 a faster burning powder with 240’s.
300 Win Mag
44 Mag Handgun
30/30 Win (Win 94) my first real deer and black bear rifle.
350 Rem Mag ( Rem 600) the best stand bait site gun those 200gr PSP are great on black bear. If the bullet doesn’t kill them the muzzle blast will knock them over !
