im curious as to the minimum expansion velocity of Federals 120gr copper power shok
I talked with Federal...

120 Gr Powr Shock: minimum velocity for expansion is 1750fps. Out of my 7" barrel, MV is 1848 fps.

150 gr Federal Fusion: "documented expansion down to ~1500 fps". MV from my 7" barrel, 1587.

Work just bought me 200 rounds of the 120 powershock. Worked well on a mule deer last year, a bit surprising to see the high minimum expansion velocity. 6" barrel and ~190 yards, still expanded well.

I work for Ammoland.com testing guns, optics, accessories and ammo. Worked at Loadoutroom.com for three years preceding that. I don't get paid enough to supply my own ammo! When possible I try to hit each range day with multiple products in concert, like a new rifle with a variety of new rounds and a new optic. When it works, it works great. When there's a problem, I have to re-do each item separately to see which is to blame.

Talked my editor into buying some rounds so I can keep the tests going, it's easier to get a rifle manufacturer to send a T&E rifle than it is to get ammo. Hard to blame the ammo manufacturers, everyone wants what they have!
