SW advertises the 500 magnum as able to take down any animal on earth so if these claims are true it should be adequate to drop a grizzely. take a look at the ft lbs and down range energy of the 500 magnum and it seems to me the cartridge is more than capable of dropping any bear. with all that said i wouldn't want to be the person to find out if SW claims are true or not. the story seemed like BS to me but i could believe a 38 did very little damage to a grizzely bear other than to piss it off.

i talked to a guy who was stationed in alaska and according to him guys carried 50 AE desert eagles as back up in bear country.
