    Planning on using them for bear this year? Just curious, will you be carrying a sidearm or bear spray as backup?

    Have any of you guys used Thors on bear or elk? Would love to see some pictures if you have.

    Got my sizing pack. I was a little surprised to be able to get all of them down the barrel without to much problem. Guess I'll be going with the .503. Terry (I think that's his name) recommended the 250gr. bullet when I told him I wanted it for all western big game from antelope up to Elk. I asked why he didn't recommend the larger 300gr. and he stated that Thor (Barnes) have 25-30% more penetration so the 250 would be more than enough. His only comment on the 300gr. was "some people just like bigger bullets". Looking forward to shooting them now...

    Thompson Center Omega .50 cal. He's going to send me a split pack of .502 and .503 so I can try them at the range. Both went down stiff but I could get them down easy enough with my "in the field" ramrod. Both showed rifling marks on the base of the bullet, .503 was just a little more pronounced. I just figured when I got to the bigger one's I'd eventually not be able to get it down or get it down but it would be to hard for hunting applications.
