Ballistic Tips vs CC Nosler's

I was just looking at the BC's for 168's, and I realized the Ballistic Tips have a higher BC than the CC. Is this odd or is it just me? I was planning on getting Ballistic Tips for hunting and CC's for paper, but is there really any advantages the CC's have over the ballistic tips?

When it comes to punching paper the Nosler custom competition is less expensive than the ballistic tip.

Is that the only advantage?

Pretty much. I have the 175 CC that I was originally going to use for hunting purposes, but have changed to the 168 BT's for the .490 BC and their ability to open at lower speeds. I hit a ground hog at 638yds in the head with the 175, and it was sure enough dead, but going through the head, it didn't really open that much. At the time I was running them at 2750fps.
