The joy of all that fuel and little else beyond the guidance package, is that it dumps the majority of its weight during flight.

The range will still be a fraction of that achieved in its original role as the target will not be doing so much of the work. Still, a multimode missile that goes quite far, quite fast and has significant end-game energy is nothing but reassuringly nasty - if you are on the correct side of the trigger press that is.
