    What caliber?

  • Mandy's avatar

    @Brian Unfortunately I have just a shoulder mount, it was pretty early in the fall, so it didn't have a great coat.

    @Jody Lots of bears around central and northern BC. I can't complain. Some big, some not so large.

    @Michael That was from a 300 win mag, same rifle I've killed numerous bears with, but with better ammo. Love my barnes after that experience. The bullet I shot didn't even retain 50% of it's weight.

    most people call a 100# bear a 300# bear. ๐Ÿ˜

  • Ethan's avatar

    from the picture it looks like you down played the weight of yours. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ‘

  • Mandy's avatar

    @Ethan Never weighed it, but I have shot 2 spring boars around 400lbs, this was probably around 250-300lbs.

    @Mandy. that's what I would guess from looking at the picture. he's gotta big head. ๐Ÿ‘
