    Shooting at a bear with a .22 is something only someone who has never been up close and personal with a bear would suggest, even in jest.

    Your .270 Win. is just fine with 140 gr or heavier bullets like Partition, TBBC, TSX, etc.

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

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

    .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.

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

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

    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.

    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

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