Im looking for a good 45acp +p Full Metal Jacket ammo for defense against black bears if the day would ever come. yes, i know, 44mag is the least you would want, but until I can afford a 44mag or .500 mag my 45 is the only hand gun I have. I live in WV and we just have black bears here, i dont think they get too big. Im not worried about hunting/hiking and running into a bear. its running into a momma bear and her cubs. Especially in the area i like to trout fish. So, what load would you recommend for my XD 45 service? Only thing I have found is buffalo bore 45acp +P ammo (230 gr. FMJFN @ 950 fps (461 ft. lbs.) I see they also have this '45 super' but after searching here it doesnt seem to be very practicle and you need a conversion and all this other stuff. any info is appreciated.
