Well, I was gonna stay out of this one, until somebody said that you don't get exit wounds with the Nosler Ballistic Tip. That is pure baloney. I've been shooting that bullet (130 grain in the 270) since the bullet came out, and I do not see any reason to change. How many deer have I shot with it - well at least 200 and probably 250 or more. I shoot them through the lungs and I wait for a side shot, and I don't remember a time that I didn't get an exit wound. I will suggest that you avoid angled shots through the front shoulder, unless you have no other shot available. I've had a few of those that didn't exit. That bullet is extremely accurate and extremely deadly. If you're going to shoot thicker skinned critters, the Partition might be a better choice, though I've never gotten the accuracy from the Partition that I get from the Ballistic Tip. And yes, the BT is a messy killer, but shoot em through the lungs and place it low enough that you don't ruin the backstrap.
