Re: Flat base bullets.
My opinion is yes. However, if you have a laser rangefinder and can beat the wind, than go with whatever is the most absolute accurate. If you need as flatter a trajectory as possible and less wind drift than go with the boat tail. Even at 3 or 400 yards it can make a world of differance if those qualities are what you need.
When I had my 243 I used 100 grain flat base bullets between 100-500 yards. I then switched to the BT and even at 400 yards it was about 2-3" of bullet drop differance between the 2 bullets. But for a guy who at the time did not have a range finder, that was pretty good!
