Can anyone tell me what is the minimum velocity the winchester 64gr powerpoint will achieve effective expansion at? I know, the higher the speed the better it is but I am very curious on the effectiveness when velocity drops to 2500fps and below.
I know this is a rather strange technical question so special thanks in advance to all those who can help.

Do you have some data confirming this that you wouldn't mind shareing? Thank you either way.

Hey thank you for a lead! Atleast if it doesn't pan out for me finding it, I know it's from a generally reputable source...
