JIMBOB86, I should have stated my comment better concerning boattail hunting bullets. The CONCEPT of a boattail bullet is to reduce drag at extended ranges. Inside 400 yards the difference between a flatbased bullet and boattail is so little it have very little if any advantage, except on very small game. Boattail designed bullet kill scads of big game yearly. However the disavantage of cup and core bullets with boattail bullets far outweigh any advantage.
