For shorter ranges, under 500 yards, your impact velocity will be high enough to expand them without losing much weight. That will make them fine on deer, better on elk.

At 500 yds, you should have 2100fps impact velocity. That is great for monos or cup n core.

At 50 yds, impact velocity is like 3000fps. Monos can handle this, but many cup n core are explosive over 2500 fps.
