I did shoot one whitetail doe (approx 100lbs) last year with factory silver tips. She was 33 paces from my treestand and dropped like a sack of rocks. The shot hit her broadside, high in the shoulder. The bullet stopped just underneath her skin on the opposite shoulder. I cut the expanded bullet out with a pocketknife and saved it, so I'll try to get an expansion measurement for you.
Even with that experience, I would still feel better with a load that is meant to penetrate further.
