    I have a cousin that went to Canada with a friend and both took bears with a .270, so I'd say with a "QUALITY" round and good shot placement you should be o.k.
    Good luck,Good hunting, and shoot straight out there, they got teeth and claws ya know.

            Yes. Feed Mr. Browning Federal 140 grain TBBC, and then pose with him over a bruin.

              I would use a 140 or 150

























              I would use a 140 or 150 Partition, XXX, or A-max at about 3000 fps and feel confident

                I think that would be the perfect caliber... load it up with some winchester ballistic tip or federal premium trophy tips and you'll be good to go.

                  Use the ammo noted above make a good shot thru the vitals and a 270 will kill the biggest black bear that ever walked.

                    A .270 is PLENTY of gun for a black bear. Use heavy premium bullets to penetrate.

                      270 with a 140 or 150 will do just fine!

                        .270 is more than enough for everything but the biggest baddest black bears. Even then, if your in a stand where they can't get you... go for it. More important than caliber or bullet weight is shot placement. You could drop a black bear with a .22 if you hit it right.

                          word to the wise, do not attempt the .22 trick...

                            The .270 will handle any black bear you should run across.

                              I agree with above statements. Make a good shot with a good bullet and he'll be DEAD.
