Default Defeating Tomcats (In Hornet)

A friend of mine and I are having trouble defeating tomcats in the hornet. Starting from 150nm, at 25,000 ft.
This is over the ocean in the Persian gulf, so terrain masking isnt an option.
We are having trouble entering the notch, it would seem.
As soon as one of us gets engaged, that person will go defensive while the other stays high and tries to get a shot off to force the tomcats to go defensive. However we both always end up getting within 15-20 miles, a little long for an AMRAAM shot but in the zone where a phoenix is basically inescapable. What is the best strategy here? What are we doing wrong? What is your strategy? All help welcome.
