I keep all cup and core bullets below 2900fps, except for coyotes. Impact velocities that approach 3000fps are explosive, literally. They need to be precisely placed to be effective, which is why I went to premium bullets. Example, shot a 154 Interbond @ 2850, from my 280, at 127 measured yards. 30% down angle put the bullet low into the brisket. The heart and lower lungs were exploded and the exit broke the front leg at the elbow joint.
