I've got the old 1895G sighted in with 400gr hawks (.035) pushed to 1850fps under a charge of H322. I was going to go with the Nosler Partition but changed my mind at the last minute, I'm sure either load would be devastating on any bear but I'll save the Noslers for another hunt. Spring bear season is tomorrow and I can't wait. Theres still a ton of snow in the back country but in lower elevations its not bad. The month of May will be much better for getting around but I'll still be out and about. Need some more hamburger and pepperoni! Good luck to everyone else, anyone have their own bear stories or loads they want to share?
