I'll be hunting in Maine this September and I'm not sure which rifle to use. I have a TC Encore 7mm Rem Mag shooting 175 gr bullet and a TC White Mtn carbine, both scoped, shooting 240 gr Hornady XTP hollow point in Hornady Sabot with 90 gr Pyrodex. I've taken 240#+ hogs with both. The 240 XTP totaly blew up in the hog and the hog never moved an inch from where it was hit. My concern is which will expend all it's energy inside the bear and dispatch it as quickly and cleanly as possible.
