Just wondering what everyone here thought of the .338 federal. Mainly if it would be capeable to ethically take a big bear. I missed out on a hunt in ak this year due to my brother in law getting a divorce, but his father said it is on for next year without a doubt. So I have pretty much settled on a .300 win mag but my cousin is going next year and has a chance on a nice ruger 77 in .338 federal for $300. I already tried to hijack the purchase and pick it up for myself but it is his dad who is selling it, (and only to him). So any thoughts or info would be greatly appreciated.
