Flat Nosed Bullets are designed to be used in rifles with tubular magazines. The bullet tip of a round in a tubular magazine is in contact with the primer of the next round in the magazine. During recoil if a sharp point bullet was used there is a chance the tip would hit the primer with enough force to set off the round it is resting on. The flat nose of a flat nosed bullet prevents this from occurring.
One negative of the flat nosed design is that they are not nearly as aerodynamic as the spitzer design and therefore shed velocity at a rapid rate. Many consider the flat nosed bullet to be the best option for a brushgun, but they are as easily deflected as any of the other bullet designs by brush.
