Yes, there is a fur-friendly .243 bullet.........Nozler Part. 85 grains. Even though they are expensive, they are worth every penny. Since I started using Partition Bullets on coyotes, every one has died fast with next to no damage to the fur.

Re: Fur friendly .243 bullet?

That's good news. Can you elaborate a little more? At distances have you taken them, how many fps is your load, and what made you try these?

I have a Dtech .243 WSSM and was going to try either the 87 grn Hornady Vmax or the 95 grn Nosler BT. The Vmax is out because from what I've read and heard, they will about cut them in half. So I was going to try the BT. Reason being, is that I want to stay away from the lighter bullets for barrel longevity.


Thanks,

The partition is fur friendly because it is not designed for explosive expansion like the V-max or other varmint bullets. Take a look at the Nosler website you and will see how the bullet is constructed. Controled expansion in front and no way it blows up.

Re: Fur friendly .243 bullet?

The Barnes 80 gr TTSX is working pretty good for me in my Rem 700 243 Win. I have shot a few coyotes with my D-Tech 243 WSSM with the Barnes 85 gr TSX bullets. Both of these bullets have been leaving a small exit hole on the coyotes. The 80 gr TTSXs shot better out of my Rem 700 than the 85 gr TSXs did. I have not shot the 80 gr TTSXs through my 243 WSSM yet.

The 90gr ballistic tip also will work as a dual purpose bullet and not wreck pelts, at least in my 243 at 3000fps. I have taken coyotes from 30-800yds with it and had the same results. The 85gr Interbond & 90gr Scirocco would also be top choices for me, but my gun doesn't like them.
