They used to be. The new ones are not coated.

Deer shot with the 100gr partition usually dont even make it back to the thicket. Pure poison.

Deer shot with 100gr.Sierra Game Kings don't even make it 30yrds.

3yrs ago I was experimenting with my .243 with different bullets.
One afternoon I shot a doe @200yrds,-- she made it 30yrds.

The same afternoon 20-30mins later a 8pt.-- he ran a circle and fell dead in his tracks.

I agree the bullet probably fragmented more than it should, but I'm not complaining, for it was a afternoon hunt!!
