I have been reloading nosler ballistic tips, 150 grains. I have a really good round there as i have full confidence in them hitting where i aim. Unfortunately, i have been told it would be preferred if i did not use them due to excessive meat damage. Can anyone suggest a similar bullet in shape, that does not have so called, explosive tendencies. I cannot speak from experience as i have not shot a deer with them yet. Are they really that bad? Or does their fearsome reputation precede them. I have read the previous threads on ballistic tips and do not wish to cover old ground, but with some people swearing by them and others preferring not to use them, it is confusing, to say the least!
