I think there is an unmet need for target shooting bullets of a non boat tail design.
We are shooting 30-06, and I don't think its unusual we are limited to a 100 yd range distance.
A lot of time and effort in a boat tail design and production that pay no return at that distance, I would rather have a better price vs range of the boat tail.
For 30-06 I would start at 174 grs (as that seems to be the accuracy sweet spot of the admittedly wide latitude 30-06).
Others can weigh in on the best for their calibers (130 in 270?).
Its funny you can buy hunting bullets with a flat base, but not target.
