Default Speer Deep Curl expansion

I love the accuracy of my Deep Curl bullet but most of my rifles are mild cartridges and Deep Curl bullets only come in heavy for caliber weights. I have seen Deep Curls tested at high speed (2600-2800fps) but not at lower speeds where my 308, 6.5x55, and 7mm-08 would be hitting in the real world (1800-2400fps) are the Deep Curls a versatile low speed killer like the Partition/Interlock or are they too "hard" to give clean kills on thin skinned game at low speed like the Trophy Bonded Bear Claw/Swift A-Frame?
I tried contacting Speer about this, but as you would expect their response was as generic and vague as humanly possible.
Anyone have any experience with these bullets?
