If you shot a coyote at roughly under 200 yards with that round you wouldn't have to skin him. The plastic tip pushes into the copper jacket and causes it to expand. The faster that process occurs the more damage is done. I am sure you have found long ribbed strips of copper in animals you have killed. That is the telltale sign of too much speed and/or the bullet hit bone. A quartering towards shot with a BT is never recommended.

I load ballistic tips for getting a new rifle or scope zero'd in and then I switch over to partitions or (now) Accubonds.

Nasty results out of my 7 mag with those bullets. I have yet to lose a deer that I have shot with that round.
