I'm looking for some recommendation's on what the ideal hand load is in the event I need to shoot a grizzly bear. Not all that uncommon here in Alaska. On most of our fishing outings, we have been in close proximity to one or more bears. Some with good stories to go with. This is the main reason I purchased the 10mm. I have the Glock 20SF.
On recommendation, I purchased a box of 220 gr Buffalo Bore Ammo. Expensive and still sitting on the shelf of my reloading bench. I have since then purchased components needed to put my own rounds together. My intent is to put a lot of the same rounds through the barrel at the range that I would shoot at a bear if ever the need arises. I also switched out barrels to the Lone Wolf LWD Barrel, M20 extended 2 Port and the LWD S/S Guide Rod Assembly.
A few years back while talking to an Alaskan hunter, he stated that when hunting grizzlies with a rifle, his third or fourth round in the magazine was always a Barnes X solid. A "bone crusher" as he put it.
Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
