if only these two were your choice which would you rather take? the 243 is a single shot with a 23 inch barrel shooting federal power shok 100 grain soft points 3000 fps 1950 pounds force. 12 is a 8 shot with a 20" slugs being used are remington slugger regular kind or federal hollow point 1610 fps 2500 pounds of force. thanks!

This sounds like bear protection you might be asking about.

I recommend just staying out of the woods.

i asked the national forest lady and she said i didn't need a hunting permit license whatever if there was a bear trying to kill me i could shoot it in self defense. I've read numerous stores about alaskan hunters and big game hunters that swear by the 243. win and say it could take down and does take down grilzzlys with one shot cleanly. its all about bullet placement (100000000000000000 and 1 times this has been said now) I've read los of story of people needing several shots with 300 win mags 338's 30-06's for small dear this only further proves my point. and i wish ignoring people meant they couldnt post on your threads or even see them :(. forgot bout the plug thing. thanks guys any more input would be appreciated.

Just make yourself appear larger and wear a bell as to warn the bear of your presence. Keep your eyes open at all times.Thats what i do in the Cleavland National Forest, and I never have had a problem yet.

Well son, here's the good news, over time those giant balls of yours will slowly turn into brains leaving you with normal sized testes so you can procreate from a position of intelligence. God willing
