i dont want to destroy there pelts so i think i will leave the 243s alone
Then that limits the choices. From what I've experienced, the hot .22 cartridges are pretty hard on fur, too. The 22-250 is just about as hard on fur at times as the .243, and I've shot a lot of coyotes with each.
If you want nice fur without large holes, stick with the .17 or .20 caliber centerfires. Maybe a .223, depending on the load.
You can load a 55 grain bullet in a .243 down to 22-250 levels and get just about the same results, but it's still going to be hard on fur.
