    40 cal round

    What bullet would/do you carry with a 40 cal to protect against bear, lions, 2 legged varmints? I've read several places that you want something that shoots fast to penetrate thick bear fur/skin. Thanks!

    Heavy for caliber bullet, 180 gr in .40(?), JSP/FMJ/hard cast lead for bear. What you read is not common wisdom for bear.
    Cougar/people are thin skinned/light boned- relatively easy to "stop". A standard JHP would likely be OK in .40- I am not intimately familiar with the caliber.

    I would say it will depend on which 40 platform you have? If it is a 9mm platform I will not recommend it on anything bigger then 2 leg animals. If you have a custom 40 where you can run 32mm TOL then you can have weight and speed for something heavier.

    Yeah go 10mm for more dangerous game that way you can push the 200 gr bulets.
