I got a win 94 and I got a idea running around my head after seeing buffalo bore has 190gr bullet load for 30-30 and I was thinking if it's possible to load 220 grain rn bullets and what type of data could I get in velocity and energy from it I'm not going to try it till I know if it's possible safe and if I can gain anything from it
I doubt that a bullet that heavy would stabilize in a .30-30bore. Even if it did, velocity would be so low no expansion would occur.
The nation that will insist on drawing a broad line of demarcation between the fighting man and the thinking man is liable to find its fighting done by fools and its thinking done by cowards.

180 is the heaviest load I can find data for. Rate of twist is not likely to stabilize a bullet as long as the 220 grain. .308 has same problem. If the bullet is yawing sideways at impact, penetration will not be good. Leave a hell of a bruise, tho.
