I thought that cruching dmage is tranferred all at once? It like you hit him with mace? Crush = more shock? Ane when you have on your head 10 cm steel plate and ask somebody to ht you with mace, you will feel it like it not there = am I getting something worng? My physics is bad?

Slinging at a brown bear would certainly be an epic way to exit this life. Might as well sling at a frieght train.  Grin

Main problem is with fact that roundish fluffy head of animal is not exactly perfect square and stone force is diminished?

Think the potential is there to kill almost anything with the right projectile in the right spot . But that's a hard shot to pull off first time everytime.

At 50 meters you only have a few seconds before the bear is gnawing on your skull. Better make it a good shot!  Thumbs Up

True. Thats what gets me. Even with a good rifle knowing how fast they run and the fact that anything besides a lethal shot is likely to end up in you dying is a pretty clutch shot.

Speaking of that...

There are bears in Finland but they don't hang around in Helsinki Cheesy Myself and my girlfriend did stumble upon a wolverine once just outside of Helsinki centre in a wood in Viikki. The dogs (two corgis) ran off barking and we chased after them thinking they were going for a squirrel. One of them stopped but the other one ran up to a furry ball and poked it with her nose. It turned round, hissed and ambled off into the bushes. The dog was lucky not to have it's face ripped off. They can take down elk so a corgi wouldn't have stood a chance. No-one believed us because they don't usually come so far South but not too long ago some tracks in the snow were found and there have been some other unconfirmed sightings. Personally, I'm convinced it was a wolverine. The ears, head shape and the way it walked were very distinctive. The adamantium claws and Canadian accent were also a dead give-away...

Was it smoking a cigar and reeking of angst? They are known for that as well.
