Remington 220gr 30-06

Anyone used these on bear got a box to try. Going to use my 7600 this year and leave the 300 at camp. We mostly drive the whole season and shots would be under 100 yards. Thanks in advance.

That load will stop anything in North America. You will be fine using it.

They weren't Corelokts but I shot a bear in Newfoundland with 220 grain roundnose Hornady Interlocks once. Perfect broadside, double lung shot. It went 6 or 7 yards and fell right over. A 220 is plenty for bear.
I just bought another box of those 220 Interlocks and that is what I'm loading for bear season this year myself. Best of luck.

Should oughta work just dandy !!

I'm a pretty strong proponent of heavy-for-caliber bullets for bear and other critters that could be hard to break down.

My Dad killed 5 bear largest being a 383 lber in PA and 4 in Quebec all with 30-06 180 RN Corelokts. Not one offered up any refusal with all either dropping in their tracks or down within 25 yds. That 220 should be more than enuff assuming a good hit.

Great load and gun for driving bear. If recoil is too much for ya, drop down to 180's. Still plenty energy to part the laurel!! Double lunged 240 pounder at 160yds with 140 grain hollowpoint and didn't go anywhere. Complete pass thru. But he was just munching on acorns, I think yours will be moving quited rapidly!

I am running a handload with a Sierra 220 roundnose for bear season... I was surprised how well it shot on paper. Im getting about 2450 fps with IMR 4064.

When I went to Maine I took 180's never got a shot, but it was big enough for a bear, should one pop up..
