I'm not a fan of Nosler Ballistic Tips for bear. In close they seem to blow up. I am a fan of Nosler Partitions though.
And bear hunting seems to bring lots of opinions as to proper bullet placement. I say treat them like a deer...meaning angle the bullet into the lungs.
I don't think you can go too heavy on a bear bullet. In fact I am switching to Sierra 220 gr RN once I use up all my Nosler 200 gr Partitions.
I just think they can take more of a pounding than deer.
Here's a nice fat sausage taken with a factory 180 grain Nosler Partition.
