which would you choose loaded however
i think 45 and 357 approach some rifle ballistics in a rifle am i right? and yes even though i specifically said 45 colt somehow people got it twisted so yes i was talking about the 45 COLT not acp. i was talking about black bear too no brownies. thanks for the feedback guys.longbeard55 said:If you will notice, JJ said 45 colt not 45 auto. There is a big difference between a 45 auto and a 45 colt. The 45 colt is a revolver round that can be loaded to meet or exceed the power of the 44 mag. Factory loads in 45 colt will be milder than the .44 mag but if you load your own and have a revolver that will handle the loads you can easily match the 44. Some 45 colts are made for cowboy loads and some 5 shot cylinders can be loaded as hot as the 44. Check you loading manuals. This being said it is my personal opinion that neither of these guns are good protection for bear. The 44 mag loaded to its hottest is still far below the power of a 30 30 and I don't think too many would use that for Brown bear. However if .44 is all you have its better than nothing.
whats so bad about taking your cat? people take their dogs camping all the time? just because its not socially acceptable for some reason to bring a specific animal with you it seems weird or whatever you think. theres benefits of having a cat. i might have to sacrifice him or some thing i get attackedlurediver said:I think you guys are giving the kid a little too much street kred. He wanted to take his cat camping with him, do you guys actually think he'll see a bear in the woods?
