I’d probably use the .300 for both hunts but then I have a handgun with me too and that’s what I’d use on a treed bear.

I love my .41 Magnum. The .300 would hammer a treed bear so if I was wanting to use a rifle that would be it.

My experience, chasing bears and mountain lions is that lugging a rifle on a mule or horse is more trouble than it’s worth. The only time I’d consider a rifle in that situation is if I was in Griz country. Besides, I like shooting handguns. Coyotes at 100 Yards with a 1911 is fun.
