Long, unsupported ogive?

Can you explain the drawbacks to this? Will the program even allow you to purchase a bullet like this?

Cast bullets need to be supported. A long unsupported ogive will tip and be inaccurate.

If the program gives you the "long unsupported ogive" warning then it's a no-go.
