Boattails VS. Flatbase for Hunting

I've always used boatail ammunition on all my rifles for hunting and I've been successful with them. It's been a few years since I've reloaded, but now that I have more time, I'm getting back into it. After research several different brands of bullets, it seems like most of your premium bullets are flatbase bullets. I'm talking about the barnes, swift, winchester failsafe. Do the flatbase bullets hold up better on impact than the boattails bullets. I've heard they do at closer ranges but work about the same at longer ranges. Are you going to get much more accuracy out of boattails than flatbase, if any? I'm not shooting for competion shooting or long range shooting. They will primarily be used for hunting, so I don't see a half inch here or there that much more effective for hunting. If anyone has experience with both, let me know what you think.
