Figure I'd stick this here.
So in prep for my elk hunt I'm discovering "Bear Loads" so called for chance encounters with bear. And since I will have a bear tag I don't need to worry w/ a big pepper sprayer
Wondering if anyone has tried loading up these larger loads. I'm looking at the .357 Magnum loads and the few 180gr+ bullets offered on Midway as "Medium Game" bullets.
The Lyman manual calls for 15gr H110 (max load) for .357 Mag in the 180gr size. That should be quite a wallop!
Any experience with heavier loads like this?
