Re: 243 and Nosler Ballistic tip loads?
55gr Btips work very well for woodchucks and were the bullets of choice in my friends' 6mm Rem varminters. The bud with the custom Douglass-barreled 6mm06, used 85gr Btips for long pokes at woodchucks with that thing.
The 55gr ones also shoot well in my M788 243. They'll probably ruin the hide on song dogs, though?
For deer, I'd likely go with the 95gr Btip. I've never used them, but a buddy did in his M700 6mm Rem and they worked very well for deer.
