While living in Alaska, I routinely fired factory 300 Gr. .338 Win Mag slugs from my Browning BAR Gr. II with no problems except scope-eye on occasion. The 4,000 ft. lbs. of muzzle energy comes with higher recoil..... You should have no problems firing the Hornady 225 SST's in your Winchester assuming it's in good condition.
