How do guys come up with this stuff ?

If you walk around in a horse corral you can find the same thing on your boots.

And the only way I know that you can flatten the boat tail is to load it backwards and when it
hits, the the boat tail will flatten.

I hope he is not your doctor or financial advisor !!!!

All I can say Is "You cant fix stupid"

The answer as mentioned a few times is no.

But have the fellow buy Litz's book and do some self study rather than debate it.

The only flattening a BT (130 gr Nosler Accubond) bullet does in my 264 Win mag is flatten the trajectory. At 3350 fps muzzle velocity it shoots like a stretched string.

The reason it doesn't flatten the base is because the pressure is just as great on the sides of the boattail as on the base. It you put a flat-nose, bore-size slug behind the bullet, the boattail would be flat as a pancake. That would be the case for a Berger VLD. Another bullet like a Barnes TTSX that's solid copper couldn't be flattened even with a slug behind.
