Granted the ogive radius is different than what I've shown below but the bullet still looks flat-nosed to me. Could be that I'm "confusing" soft point with flat nosed... If I'm wrong that's cool with me. I would just like to make this a learning experience and know why I'm wrong.
The first bullet shown is a spitzer,the second is a spitzer also but the third is Called a semi
spitzer soft point, the forth and fifth are soft point boat tails.
The bullet you posted is definitely a flat nose and for a tubular magazine.
you are right about the round nose. the true round nose bullet normally has a larger nose
on it and must be seated deeper than the semi spitzer.
The main thing is that they should be seated to the cannelure ,but not necessarily crimped
unless they are in a tubular mag.
Sorry I was half asleep.
