I saw a documentary once where an Inuit hunter stalked and shot a polar bear with a .222. He basically stalked really close and shot the bear in the back of the neck - it dropped right away!
Way big kahunas, if you ask me!

BTW, a friend of mine was stationed on one of the islands off the Alaskan coast (Coast Guard radar station), and a bear started attacking a dog that was tied up outside. The guys shot the bear a few times with M16's, which seemed to aggravate him quite a lot - who knows where they hit him? Luckily, one of the fellas had a 30-30; he went in and got it and shot the bear, finally killing it. Dog survived, if I recall.
