The one thing you need to think about is the velocity at close range with the 243….you will be better with bullet construction like the BT or ET bullet if you pick Nosler for 50-200yrd bush hunting.
If you are mostly seeing and shooting Deer or ElK size animals at 200-400yrds I would lean toward the Accubond or Partition.
I went through the same thing when I was picking a hunting bullet for my 300wsm…I ended up going with the Accubond because most of my shots are 200yrds and out in clearings or bog areas and its proven to be a great performing bullet in the 200-500yrd range for me. BUT when I'm pushing / dogging deer in thick bush I'm loaded with Barnes TTSX bullets (similar to BT & ET)…it is devastating at high velocity in the 50-200yrd range and opens nicely, with no tracking…they drop.
