Lethality difference between boat tail and flat base?
It's not a question of lethalness dead is dead.

That was not he question.

Boat tail bullets = less drag = more stable flight at longer range = better long range accuracy
The boattail does not take effect till the bullet speed falls below the speed of sound.

At speeds above the speed of sound the nose shape has a greater effect than that of the base on retarding drag.

How many deer are shot at those kind of ranges.
