A mate from the lower 48, Tim F. was hunting in Manitoba with a .470 double rifle. The owner of a lodge asked him to rid the camp of a bear that was breaking into cabins. Tim agreed and the bear dropped quickly to a 320 grain bullet propelled by 103 grains of 4831. Tim is finding, as am I, that this one load regulation has been a bit over stated throughout the decades. While not every load will shoot well in a double, certainly more that one will shoot accurately. Tim's bear was taken at 22 paces but his rifle shoot well beyond that.
