I am going to use it for backpacking in black bear country and may even use it for deer hunting. I have heard the ballistics are more .41 magnum like but I think that is a moot point

People may argue that if you want quick incapacitation, use a .45. However, most reflex shooting involves about 3 shots, and I would rather drive home an extra two that I know will hit. Its not like my attacker would be a hyped-out berzerker from new guinnea with his scrotum tied against his dick to piss him get him even crazier. Then again, a strung-out crack addict in north philly (I don't know why I would be there in the first place) might just present such a problem. I still stand by my reasoning.

Don't let the black bear worry you. Make a little noise while your walking and you will never see one. Unless you get between a mother and cub they won't become agressive unless you do something dumb. Also before you pull the trigger and kill an innocent animal, unless the bear is already charging, face the bear, wave your arms and yell and odds are the bear will run. If you are charged empty the clip into their upper torso. If you try for the head the round will probably be deflected by the skull.
