Is there a difference in the jacket thickness between Noslers varmint ballistic tips and their hunting ballistic tips? If the jacket thickness isn't the difference, what is?

the varmint bullet has a very thin jacket with almost no tapper to it, there for it's opens up very fast, there "hunting b.t" has same shape and tip but the jacket on the hunting bt tappers about midway down on the bullet makeing the jacket thicker on down to the base of the bullet. they still open up pretty darn fast tho, depends on what your shooting but i like the hunting bt in 6mm because the dont explode on impact they will stay together a little bit longer givein it time to enter then expand.
