not a long range cartridge but wanted to ask about 200accubond

I have a 300 whisper on a rem action and wanted to know what velocity would i need to maintain to get some expansion out of the 200 accubond,I am planning on trying to let my little brother shoot a hog with it since he shoots the gun so well and it has almost no recoil,again i know the whisper isnt a long range hunting rifle but I thought people on here would know more about the accubond then anyone else.and I plan on setting him up for about a 50yrd shot.

I think I can ge them up to about 2000fps .
thanks
jared

    Jared,
    I don't have any expierence with a 200 gr Accubond myself, but you should check out the "820 Elk shot". I'm positive that accubond was going slower than 2000 fps, but it was a 180gr (I believe). Expansion looked pretty good. The thread is in the LR hunting section.
