Give us more details! How many EVs? Positive Nature? Choice Band? What about the target info? There is no way to say.
no nature or EV's, standard max IV's on each side... sorry
Oh yeah I edited my answer a lot so you may want to check again

Impossible to say really.
Due to variables like Defence, Attack, HP, Items and Abilities, Heavy Slam's damage will vary for every single different Pokemon.
Heavy Slam's damage is calculated like this;
120 base power, if target's weight is less than or equal to ⅕ (20%) of user's weight.
100 base power, if target's weight is greater than ⅕ (20%) of user's weight and less than or equal to ¼ (25%) of user's weight.
80 base power, if target's weight is greater than ¼ (25%) of user's weight and less than or equal to ⅓ (33.3%) of user's weight.
60 base power, if target's weight is greater than ⅓ (33.3%) of user's weight and less than or equal to ½ of user's weight (50%).
40 base power, if target's weight is greater than ½ (50%) of user's weight
So as long as your over 230KG... Snorlax isn't going to be doing alot to you. :P

And also Heavy Slam is great on Snorlax anyway Return/Body Slam > Heavy Slam any day because of stab ;-;

Damn pokémath... English please?
Alright so 0 Atk Snorlax Heavy Slam vs. 0 HP/ 0 Def Aggron does about 6.76-8.18%
Aggron is 360 KG
0 Atk Snorlax Heavy Slam vs 0 HP/ 0 Def Ambipom: 131 - 155 (45.01 - 53.26) -- 32.81% Chance to 2HKO
Ambipom is 20.3 KG... so Heavy Slam is at the max
Ambipom's def is also 66 (base stat) and 75 HP (base stat)
So yeah Snorlax with Heavy Slam isn't going to be KOing much unless it's something like Joltik
Wow thanks... Maybe i'll Iron Ball it.
