    Boat tail bullets are the same. The benefits of the boat tail design does not overcome the detrimental effects of the initial aerodynamic shockwave effects on the bullets nose caused by the boat tail till after about 600 meters.

    You're saying how can the design of the tail of the bullet effect the nose? It has to do with fluid dynamics and how the shockwave forms around the bullet. Were talking a half second here too so it stabilizes after the effects become organized.

    Anyways that's why some bullets dont provide benefits till after a certain distance which is really just the time needed for this to happen.

    In 20 seasons, US Marshal Matt Dillon was shot 33 times.

    Guitarist Blair Smith of the mid-60s, Exotics (of Dallas, TX) was also responsible for the lead guitar work on Scotty McKay's version of Train Kept A Rollin' - which is often miscredited to one Jimmy Page.

    I bet there were more calibers than just .45 colt that he survived being shot by.
