Yes Boat tails are not that great unless you are shooting way way way out there. Flat based bullets are always more accurate at hunting ranges. I have some boat tail loads that are very accurate at 100 yards though. But flat based are more accurate.
if 500 yards was my minimum distance and my maximum was however further out I could accurately hit, then I would choose boat tail. the boat tail is ONLY for better ballistics in the wind and wind only becomes an issue once you get out pretty far
