Saboted pistol bullets at rifle velocities....

Was sighting in my new T/C Impact yesterday. I'm using MMP sabots around 230 gr lead round nose bullets. Now that I'm in the neighborhood I was figuring on fine tuning with 250 gr. XTP's. Then it struck me that I'd be pushing a bullet designed to travel at 800-900 fps pushing 1800 fps+ (running 2050 fps with the 230). What will it do on impact with a White Tail. So I'm thinking 45-70 bullets but they certainly are pricey.

My question, how does the XTP perform at high velocities?
