Just got back from a hunt in New Brunswick and had good results with the 20GA, I shot a bear about 200 lbs with 3" magnum copper solids which broke both shoulders and put the animal down without a twich, my wifes nerves got the better of her and she missed her bear. I will continue to use this round as it worked very well when placed properly. Also we had a great guide, Jamie Weeks of New Brunswick who worked hard to get us several shot oppertunities and is an all around gentelman who knows how to treat his clients. Jamie is a regular contributer to this forum. I will follow up with some pics soon.
