The rifle you shoot accurately, with enough power for the bear you're shooting. I'd probably not hunt Alaskan brown bear with a 30-30.. I'd definitely hunt East coast black bear with one.

Honestly, bring enough gun for the bear, and make sure you can shoot it accurately enough to actually hit the vitals at reasonable distances you can expect to hunt at. 270, 243, 308, 30-06, 45-70, 7mm 08, 7mm mag, 300 win, 300 wby, 338 federal, 338 win, 375 HH, etc would all do well. 243 might be a little light in some cases.. but under 100y, I'd bet the bears life on it.

Depends on the bear, a black bear can be easily taken with a 6.5cal or bigger. a grizzly is gonna require certainty to anchor it. i wont go after grizzly with anything smaller than a .338 rcm. i saw a grizzly get up and run after being hit with a 30–06. I am also fond of sniper rifles. I like night hunting with them. You can get some different scopes for your rifle. I just got a thermal vision scope from https://www.atncorp.com/thermal-scope-thor-hd website. It is a cool thing indeed
