I could easily see those things going 600+ yards, at 450+FPS
For things like First Strikes I don't really consider a 45 degree lob shot "normal" range.
Even at a "mere" 200 feet a First Strike still has quite noticeable drop from the aim point. Even seeing how much less drop the bismuth shots have at a measurable range would be educational.
Oooh, another fun test for them. Call up your local butcher shop for some pork rib bones and bury them about a half inch deep into some modeling clay for a quick and dirty body analog. See if those heavy *** loads will crack a rib at close range.
