  1. Factory Loads
    Hi All, New Guy here. I've many other firearms but just bought my first revolver. It's a Taurus Tracker with a 4" barrel. The main reason I bought it is for predator defense while camping with my wife. I'm not sure which of the two types of ammo would be best for defense against a black bear...

I am considering a Tracker .44 mag as my 4-legged defender, and my 627 as my 2-legged one. That being said if you were in the pacific northwest and only had...
