Location of hunt:
Federal Premium Vital-Shok .300 Win. Mag 180-grain Nosler Partition
My recent bear hunt in Northwestern Maine:
The bear was quartering towards me and I shot him through the right front shoulder. It took out the heart and both lungs, and settle just under the hide of the left hind leg. The bullet went the entire diagonal length of the bear AFTER smashing through the shoulder.
The bear weighed just shy of 300 lbs.
I've always used Federal Power-Shoks with the Speer Hot-Cor but I'm sold on the Vital-Shok with the Nosler Partitions!!!
