good article with charts of performance reports…
Good article, I concur.
I went with these for Bear country.
For which weapon?
Taurus PT 1911. Or Springfield Armory XDM .45 w/4.5 in. barrel.
OR you could ask yourself, If a Grizzly bear was charging you which one would you want to have to protect yourself? How many rounds in a 10 MM? How many rounds in your .45?
I don’t have Griz in my back yard, just 400lb Black bears.
So, you would settle with a 9mm? Just kidding!
I live in black and griz country before I moved here I only had blacks and carried a 44 with hardcast. When I got here I said hmm these critters are quite a bit bigger so I started carrying a 454 with nosler partitions still a 45 right BTW one of the few pistol rounds that can benefit from partitions as far as I’m concerned
17 to be exact but if you look at the ballistics, 10mm has more energy than the 45acp also.
Love me the 1 centimeter cartridge…
