    will 220 grain 30-06 bullets expand good?

  • #2
    I'm going to agree with Kody. That bullet is way to heavy to be putting through a .30-06. The next caliber up that I know of that uses a 220 grain bullet is getting to the .338 win mag. Even then your MV is in the 2700+ range. Trying to put a chunk of metal that heavy downrange through an -06 seems to be begging for problems. I don't think I've seen a load heavier than a 180 grain for that gun. I wouldn't try it.

      220 grain is too heavy and I’ve tried 250’s just for grins and giggles and it’s like throwing bricks with the trajectory of one. LOL! The heaviest I shoot are 190’s even for Moose

        Use the 180s, you will be fine
