Flat nose vs. SWC

I've seen .45 ACP 185 gr cartridges described as "flat nose" and others described as "semi wad cutters". Those called flat nosed are cone-shaped like the SWC, but have no shoulder. Are the bullets the same  and do they perform as well as one another?

The truncated cone bullet will not cut as clean a hole in the target as the semi-wadcutter.  Other than that, you won't know which shoots better until you try them.

I'm old & half blind & even at 21 ft if it's not a SWC then I can't see the hole clearly. Been there, done that.
