Steve West, founder and host of Steve's Outdoor Adventures TV, has taken a new Muzzleloader World Record grizzly bear, setting a new mark at 26 1/16". Prior to West's kill the record had been 23 2/16".

Using a CVA .50 Caliber ACCURA V2 from 49 yards, West took the grizzly during a 10-day hunt in British Columbia while hunting with AmericanHunter.org contributor Phil Phillips.

West was shooting 405 grain Copper Powerbelt Bullets propelled by 150 grains of IMR whitehot pellets. Because the skull had tissue and the lower jaw still attached the bear will have to be re-measured for official entry, but the measurement is not expected to change.
