My Great uncle lived and hunted in the UP. he carried a S&W model 28 loaded with a hand loaded 180gr cast bullet. He also hunted with the same handgun. He killed deer, bear, and moose with that handgun.
I also met a guy at the Reno, NV sportsman's warehouse when it opened. He was posting a picture of the black (cinnamon) bear he had shot. 600lb and taken with a 158gr cast bullet he made himself. One shot is what he said. I remember looking at that picture and thinking my 45 Colt load might not be enough to stop that thing. BTW that load is a 300gr Lee cast bullet over a stiff charge of H-110. It will penetrate through over 36" of wet phone books. I couldn't find the bullet after it went through my set up.
