I would very much appreciate everyone's opinions on the Nosler Ballistic Tips for black bear and deer. I have read and heard that these bullets are unacceptable for big game hunting yet a lot of people use them successfully. I also understand that after the first year Nosler changed the design of the >.264 BTs to make them hold together better.
Specifically, I have a handloaded the 165 gr. BT to approx. 2750 fps in an '06 and am getting 1-1.5" groups. Would use Partitions in a second, but don't have any on hand and am just wondering how these BTs would perform on game.
