Are rivolvers really good against bears?
Why don't they just use .45 ACP pistols to protect them against bears? Rivovers take too long or are hard to reload.

A .45 ACP is well known to just ricochet off a bears head and pi$$ them off.
Even .357 mag.
Take down a bear with a revolver, use .44 mag or .500 nitro.
Autoload handguns are just very poor hunting guns.
Why reload at all, if you can't kill a bear with one shot, best you don't even try and stay away from bears.
I am not into killing animals anyway.

Yes, a 125 Grain .357 Magnum JHP has better penetration and diameter than a .45 at anything more than 20 feet.
If you wait to shoot a bear until it is that close you have lost your ability for a second shot. Probably why many states ban hunting with semi's.

The spelling is revolvers, and I don't see why not.
