I cut the expanded bullet out with a pocketknife and saved it, so I'll try to get an expansion measurement for you.

Even with that experience, I would still feel better with a load that is meant to penetrate further.
Okay, the expanded bullet measured 0.674" at the widest point. It was shot from a 20sf with a 6" factory barrel.
