    5" barrel

    200 gr. XTP @ 1,250 fps = 694 ft/lbs
    200 gr. FMJ-FP @ 1,250 fps = 694 ft/lbs

    http://corbon.com/huntammo.html

    4.3" barrel

    180gr BondedCore SP 1320fps = 696 ft/lbs
    200gr FP Penetrator 1200fps = 640 ft/lbs

    Any of those work? Of course there also all of the excellent full power self defense ammo from Winchster, Georgia Arms, Proload, Corbon, Texas Ammo, etc.

    If you're going to be in bear country, first take the time to do some reading on bears. There are a number of good books on bears and bear attacks and how to avoid them. Avoiding them is a good thing.

    Beyond that, .44 mag minimum, 45-70 Marlin Guide Gun better yet.
