I've heard/read everything from 1,100 fps to 2,000 fps. Since there is no official expansion velocity range data available (that I am aware of) I figured I would ask those who use them in the field. Please share your experiences and any stories that you've come accross to justify your answer/opinion/vote.
What would be the minimum velocity limit for this bullet in making a reliable kill shot on deer sized game without depending on bone for expansion.
I have no clue but i have about 85 of them for my 7mm-08 that i want to use for a long range coyote load. I think i read somewhere that a guy had success down to 1200 fps so that is what i am going to vote for.

That's cool. And just to be clear, I don't expect that any one answer will be the right answer. I just figured that this thread will be an opportunity for the longrange community to form a pattern by putting all our heads together. I hope for people to vote even if they think they are close, but aren't sure they are right.
