I hunted in NC from Friday to Tuesday. I saw at least a dozen bears but only one of them was close enough to shoot. Too bad it was on the move and I was facing the opposite direction. I was able to bloody the newest addition to my gun safe on a spike buck. The Win M70 Extreme Weather that JES rebored to .358 is a dream to carry and shoots just as well as any other he has rebored for me. The factory Hornady 200gr SP load did a number on the small buck at 100yds. There was massive internal damage and the shot actually tore it's esophagus. I have a few more bear hunting opportunities this year so I'm still hoping to get one.
I reload and shoot 348 Win, 358 Win, 6.5 Grendel, 30-06 Springfield, 300 BLK, 44 Mag, 357 Maximum, 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 225 Win and 35 Rem
