Interesting Facts

  • Supporting some of the densest amount of black bear in the world, Vancouver Island is estimated to be the home of up to 12,000 of these omnivorous creatures.
  • Casey’s choice of ammunition for this hunt is .270 WSM for its extreme knockdown power and exceptionally flat shooting ability down-range.
  • Winchester Expedition Big Game ammunition has a polymer tip that resists deformation, maximizing performance and promoting expansion.
