7mm 162gr A-Max

With Hornady's 7mm 162gr A-Max (BC = .625) bullet starting out at 3300fps, the Hornady 6th Edition reloading manual Vol. 2 shows the velocity at 1890fps at 1000 yards.

My question is; What approximate maximum distance in yards should this bullet at the aforementioned velocity level be capable of under "perfect" conditions before velocity drops too low? Can this bullet at that velocity make it accurately to 1500 yards?
