I had a fellow shooter tell me that he thought that boattail bullets were harder on barrels than flatbased bullets . His point was that boattails force gasses to the side and to a point where the boattail ends . Where as with a flatbase the gasses are pushing entirely against the bullet and not to the side and to a point . Frankly I think his point may have some validity ! Any thoughts on this , wouldn,t hurt to sleep on it .
