Though I have never killed anything with it, I wouldn't feel undergunned with my .338Win. Though if I was going for those brutes I might opt for 275gr. A-frames or a 300gr. Woodliegh.

I always carry my 45/70 or 458Lott. I usually dont hunt the brownies/griz but I do always have a tag for one :D

The minimum I would use or recommend is a 30-06 or a 300winny with 180gr bullets.

I'd use my old Ruger 77 in .338 Win. Mag., with 250 gr. Nosler Partition bullets in my handloads.

I knew a man who lived there for many years, and he killed eight grizzlies over the years, using his .30-06 and factory 220 gr. round nose bullets.
