    @Tahr do you do anything with the heads that get batted? Smooth off the tip? Or just shoot em.
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along
    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    I haven't used then for 10 years but the answer is that it never worried me.

    Just shoot them. If the mag is full they all get flat tips. Hold on Mr deer Iím just going to sharpen my tip. Same for most lead tipped projectiles.

    Ps heads are what your wife or boyfriend gives you.

    I remember back when using factory PMC in the .270 the lead tips got horribly mashed if out shooting wallabies,the one in bottom of mag might have 10-15 rounds fired above it before its turn,I took to trimming the lead off them completely with tullins shears (remember them?) right from get go.... shot a chammy at close to 400 yards using those....how I know how far away it was is the first shot aimed at backbone clipped her toenails,giving me correct amount of kentucky windage for 2nd shot.
    the only difference Ive found with boattails VS flat base is the boat tails that wee bit easier to load into case as they fall in without being held as press starts to move.

    Yes I did read somewhere that the tip of the bullet won’t really affect accuracy.
    But if your reloading and scratch the base of the bullet this will cause an inaccurate round.
