Another post about pistols for bears got me thinking. What would be the ultimate bear stopping rifle? If you were on Kodiak with a deer down and a Big Coastie circling and woofing in the fog what would you most want in your hands. Would you want a traditional controlled round feed bolt rifle in .375 H&H? How about a Heym 89B Double in .450/400? Or how about something custom like a Browning BAR or BLR .300 Win Mag converted to .416 Ruger? Personally I would prefer a Ma Deuce but they are s little aggravating to lug around.
