Yes, I am going to try and shoot my first bear before we leave California. I had the choice between my 260 Remington and my 338 Lapua. Because of the condors in the area I want to hunt I will be forced to use lead free bullets to comply with Fish and Game regulations. Unfortunately there aren’t many lead free choices for the 260 so I decided onthe 338. It should have plenty of knock down power for a California black bear.
I’ve not been at the reloading bench for quite some time, so it was nice to have a little quiet time. It’s unfortunate I have to drive so far here to go and shoot or I would do a lot more reloading! It will be good to get back to Missouri.
