    The reason is that for big dangerous game, a solid bullet will achieve much more penetration than an expanding bullet. For some reason its really hard to find a heavy full metal jacket bullet for 44 mag or 45/70. Note that you couldn't hunt with these bullets in most places, however they would be great for bear protection.

    .312 around 115GR; any 45/70; 357. The light .312" would work in 32/20, 32 S&W through .327 Federal, Tokarev, and 303 British. .323" might be useful too.

    45/70 would be terrific
    Here in BC.

    And in case you missed it...400 g 45-70!
    If first you don't succeed, reload.

    Not so sure of the 45/70 Barnes bullets need speed to mushroom.....45/70 is not exactly the caliber that screams speed.

    Actually I'm not a fan of monometals.....I vote none of above or below.
    A free society must outlaw harming innocent people to function, but when we seek to curtail what all of us can do, rather than holding each of us responsible for what we actually do, we give up on freedom itself.
