Depends on:
1. How big are the clips?
2. Is it full-auto or semi-auto?
3. Are you using 70 gr bullets or 50 grainers?
4. You WILL be shooting at ranges of five feet or less, right?

;) ;) :D :D

Bcat, you get one bullet and one charging grizzly with a 223 in hand.
I will be in the tree behind you filming, but when your 223 fails to do the job and the griz is done having his way with ya, I will pop him with something a little bigger. 300? 338? 45-70?I just cant decide,but if I'm in griz country you can bet I will not be carrying a 223 or a damn BB gun.
