    "We have Koala's that would take this on!"

    He was out deer hunting last week when a large grizzly bear charged him from about 50 yards away. The guy emptied his 7 mm Magnum semi-automatic rifle into the bear and it dropped a few feet from him. The big bear was still alive so he reloaded and shot it several times in the head.

    The bear was just over one thousand six hundred pounds. It stood 12' 6" high at the shoulder, 14 FEET to the top of his head. It's the largest grizzly bear ever recorded in the world.

    Of course, the Alaska Fish and Wildlife Commission did not let him keep it as a trophy, but the bear will be stuffed and mounted, and placed on display at the Anchorage airport to remind tourists of the risks involved when in the wild.

    Based on the contents of the bear's stomach, the Fish and Wildlife Commission established the bear had killed at least two humans in the past 72 hours including a missing hiker.

    The US Forest Service, backtracking from where the bear had originated, found the hiker's 38-caliber pistol emptied. Not far from the pistol was the remains of the hiker. The other body has not been found.

    Although the hiker fired six shots and managed to hit the grizzly with four shots ( the Service ultimately found four 38 caliber slugs along with twelve 7 mm slugs inside the bear's dead body ), it only wounded the bear and probably angered it immensely.

    The bear killed the hiker an estimated two days prior to the bear's own death by the gun of the Forest Service worker.

    Think about this:

    If you are an average size man; you would be level with the bear's navel when he stood upright. The bear would look you in the eye when it walked on all fours! To give additional perspective, consider that this particular bear, standing on its hind legs, could walk up to an average single story house and look over the roof, or walk up to a two story house and look in the bedroom windows.

    Cheers Rob

    Fuck that would make your butt cheeks clench. That is a hell of a good reason to ditch the bolt actions and invest in semi auto's.

    Reminds me of the story of how to tell if your being chased by a Brown bear or a Grizzly.
    A brown bear will climb the tree after you, the grizzly will push it over.

    Might pop into Reloaders see if they still have that 270 Bar in the rack

    That was not shot in Alaska. I shot it, on Kaweka J and found the remains of 12 trampers, 97 Sika deer a submarine and a leopard. I shot it with a 17 HMR handgun. Straight after I took a dump that looked purple and smelt of sherbet.
