What’s the difference?

I'm not sure about "Standard" unless you're talking about a flat base, but the Boattail is refering to the shape of the bullet.

With a boattail, the back of the bullet is smaller than the fattest part. It's better at long distances becaus the reduced end of the bullet puts the air behind it back with less turbulance. So, it stays more true at long distances with less wobble. But, because of all the angles, it talkes more care to load and keep the bullet true.

But I'm sure that some of the guys here can explain it better than me.
