With the new Hornady squishy tip rounds, you can have boat tail accuracy in a tube fed rifle.

I think for the most part once you reach that distance you're past the effective range of the round. The Hornady round have extended the range a bit but nothing like what you'd see out of a modern tipped bullet which will have ill effects in a tubular mag.
