hunting black bear

  1. 300 wsm. Soft points or premium ammo for black bear

    Alright, got a question for ya. I got a 300 wsm I would like possibly take black bear hunting. The range is between 20 and 40 yds. This will be the first bear I have shot with a rifle. Do you think I should use a softpoint or premium ammo? Would it matter if the bear was over 300 lbs or so...
