minimum velocity for reliable expansion?

I would like to know what you all think is the minimum acceptible velocity to ensure reliable expansion of the 30 caliber Nolser 200 grain Accubond bullet. I am trying to figure out what would be my effective maximum range. Thanks, Rufous.

    I think Nosler lists them as ok down to 1600-1700 fps. I would limit them to around 2000 fps for "good" expansion on light targets. That's my 'rule-of-thumb" if you will.
