    Fair point. I just don't see the need for the FMJ. I'm surprised you haven't had a jam in 1500 rounds though. Wouldn't be my first choice for a bear defense gun but to each their own.

    A lot of focus on recoil here,,,keep in mind bears are super fast,,most likely to get one shot,,so recovering from recoil may not be as important as one might think.
    I myself carry a 45/70 and thanks to Remmy Jim, I am driving a 420g hardcast at 2000fps,,,it will work

    I have tons of backup, but something tells me that the first defense best option is some good bear spray. Unless i have a bullet sitting in the chamber with the saftey off which i dont often do
