If it will shoot them, that could add another 200 yds capability.
Energy would then still be over 1000 ft lbs at 700 yds (assuming 3200 mv).
Our deer out here are quite a bit bigger, mature bucks are 250 pretty easily, I've weighed some that were 300 lbs. With the smaller deer you mention, you could probably even get by with less energy needed, so long as you make a good broadside shot.
Sounds like a fun project, best of luck.
