What bullets do you like use instead of Nosler ballistic tips? Looking for something in 243 around 80 grain for coyotes.
Just out of curiosity, why are the BTs out of the running? If you are trying to minimize pelt damage, a FMJ of some sort may be your best bet. Not sure that any bullet will reliably stay inside a coyote (no exit) out of a 243.
I think the world of the Sierra GK 85 grain BTHP, though it may be a little too heavily constructed for coyotes.
