I don't think electronic callers are legal here in PA.
I hunt with a nearly identical setup here in PA (SBHH, Red Dot) and although I have not shot a bear with it I have had some inconsistent behavior from the 300gr XTPs I have shot. The last 2 deer I took, neither XTP expanded properly, neither exited and both shed quite a bit of weight.
Both deer were recovered but my faith in the 300gr XTP is shaken.
I think if I were you I would stick with a nice wide meplat hard cast bullet in the 280-320gr range over a stiff dose of H110 or 2400.
The bears can get pretty big up there. Two years ago I helped a hunter drag out a 400ish' pound bear less than 50 miles from Scranton. The hunter who took it said it was just working its way through the woods, not on any particular trail.
