    In that case I would not send them much over 3500 fps, or else they will come apart.

    Ive run them in my 1/9.5" TW, 22" sporter rig at 3880 fps, deady accurate to 300 yards on coyote.
    I ran them against the 55g NBT using the same load and had no difference between the 2 at the range, speeds/accuracy were the same.
    I use them in my 6x6.8 @ 3590 fps & 6x45 @ 3100 fps since they do perform so darn well.
    I have only used the tipped varmageddons, not the HP ones.
