Help me decide
PA Black Bear, so they aren't HUGE. Maximum distance of 100 yards, but likely closer. Choices are a 7mm-08 or a .44 mag lever action. 7mm-08 has a scope, but the .44 has a peep sight. I'm leaning towards the .44 at the moment, just because it's more fun to carry around and shoot. I can shoot them with equal precision at 100 yards, but I'd say the 7mm-08 is the more accurate of the two.
What are everyone's thoughts on the .44 mag out at 100 yards? Still plenty of energy to ethically take a black bear?
Not a life-altering decision, but I thought it might be fun to get some other points of view
