The merits of the caliber debate with modern ammunition

This conversation is going places.

It’s chuggin along…

Shooting bear with pistols, trojan commercials and penetration issues…probably not going on full30s greatest hits lol


#111

Ok, maybe on occasion, hardly ever, threads tend to slightly derail😂

There are some big issues with all this debate too. Like if a bear charges, you have 3 seconds to fire your load and hope you hit the right spot. No sloppy shooting will save you. You also have to have the ability to shoot more than once… lots of people talk about being able to fire 2 or 3 loads at a time, but many fire to early and only once. Leaving them feeling inadequate. Some try to compensate with size… others think shooting their loads like a sewing machine will work better. All in all, it comes down to shot placement, deep penetration, and keeping your cool when dealing with dangerous wild game. :grin::heart::us::heart::us:

True, everybody has different preferences. You cannot makeup for poor shot placement by using a bigger bullet but you should also choose A round you have confidence in and are comfortable shooting. I Iike a little more punch than what 9mm delivers so its .45 and 10mm for me mostly, to each his own though.

Lesson of the story: always carry protection…

This may be the best reply in this thread

Great point. A .22 rimfire can be equally fatal with good shot placement.
