You may not be sensitive to recoil, but loud noises will make you deaf. Period.Thanks to those of you who commented. I am not sensitive to recoil or loud noises. I've had a 300 Weatherby Magnum, A 444 and a 375 H&H. None was the right fit. I'm hoping the Ultr Mag is.
Good equipment and great plan. I hope you get a good black bear and the 225gr Accubond will be more than enough for the task at hand.Gentlemen, I appreciate your input. Having had a bad experience at at the range with someone who wasn't considerate has made me very aware of the effect big bores with brakes can have on my fellow shooters. Yes, I have proper ear protection so thanks for mentioning that. My cartridge of choice is a 225 gr Nosler Accubond by Conley Precision. My scope of choice is the Nightforce NSX 2.5 X 10-32. May will be the first field test as I'll be going for bear in Maine.
