Federal Premium Vital-Shok .375 H&H 300-grain Barnes Triple-Shock X Bullet
I used a custom pre 64 Winchester model 70 in .375 H&H with 300-grain Barnes Triple-Shock loads. These are the most accurate rounds I have ever shot. At the range 100yd 3 shot groups are clover leafs. I took the bear with one shot at 150yds broadside. I hit just behind the shoulder and the round went completely through both sides leaving a perfect hole my index finger could fit in. He measured out at 8ft square with a dark winter hide.
