I'd ahve thought that the biggest problem was that above 2200 meters per second your projectiles are behaving like meteors buring up from air friction and exploding when they hit the target.

If you can get coilguns into this speed range they might still be attractive in vacuum due to their relatively low amont of waste heat.

Your projectiles are probably excessively heavy too.
