Friend of mine who buys bigbore slugs from me for his .457 Quackenbush airgun recently finished a hunt in Canada....don't know what province.

He took this small bear with a .457 caliber airgun, one shot, using a 422 gr Hollow Point dead-soft lead slug. Shot went through both shoulders, and within 50 yards the bear was down.

Here's a pic:

As far as I know, this is the first black bear killed with a modern airgun.

Bigbore airguns are gaining popularity, and the small bore airguns are great for small game hunting. For the story of this hunt, brief as it is, you can email me and I'll send you the link to the forum it is posted on.

As I said before, Todays modern air rifles are a far cry from the red ryders we grew up with.
