Are you planning on using it strictly for self defense or is there a good chance you would take some game with it as well?

LE127 OO Buck and a Mossberg 590A1. Seriously, a 30 mag w/ M855 should cover any critter besides a Grizz.

69 or 75gr OTM/BTHP or a Federal 55/62gr bonded bullet.

There is a big difference between ammo you'd use for a human/cougar and a bear.
