Varmint Bullet for .243AI 1/8 twist?

Which Varmint bullet would you recommend for a .243AI with 1/8 twist 26" barrel? Was thinking the Nosler 70gr. BT. Is that too light given the twist and velocities?

I used to shoot the 80 grain Blitz with a 1:9 twist at about 3500 fps in a 6mm. Really hard on coyotes
