What's the heaviest bullet commercially available?

<edit>: I'm not looking to reload ...strictly want off the shelf.

If you check out Ammoman, you will see some 80gr HP Federal stuff for sale. I think it's the last listing on the .223 page.

Woodleigh has some 1000 gr. bullets available for the 700 Nitro Express.

I'm not sure if these bullets are available loaded in a commercial round though.

(This isn't the answer you are looking for is it!?)

Maybe ...if there's a conversion upper for an AR-15.

JLK has a 90gr VLD. You need a 6-1/2 twist barrel to shoot it.

Nah. 1/7" will handle them just fine.
