I bought a RIA 10mm off of gunsamerica yesterday, so won't have it for a couple of weeks. I plan on using this as a woods gun here in Montana. What recommendations do you have for ammo? Might be hard to find anything now! I was thinking 180 or 220 grain full metal jacket.
Winchester 175 grain Silvertip is the best of the large commercial manufacturer's ammo. It is what I carry in my Kimber 1911 10mm. Buffalo Bore or Underwood 180 grain are both great rounds for woods carry. I carry either one of them in my Glock G20 SF.
If Grizzlies are around, I add a .44 magnum or .460 magnum revolver in addition to my 10mm.
I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

I'd add a .30-06.

Just lube the handgun with peanut butter, then you can throw the gun down and run. Bear will likely become interested in the peanut butter and you could escape.
