Re: Bullet rotation vs velocity
You start off where we agree, but then you go down the same path as many other people. A fast twist barrel certainly scores grooves in the bullet jacket and stresses the jacket more than a slower twist barrel. So when such a bullet impacts it may expand more. I said that in the first post. I have two rifles that are slightly faster twist than recommended for the bullets I shoot (one never knows before hand what a rifle will like so another forum member has some very nice, impossible to get anymore, bullets that my rifle didn't like even though it had enough twist).
After that part, you journey along with the others.
I'll remind you of one thing though, you had enough good sense to do your own tests and trust no one. A elk hunting trip for you or me cost $3,000 - $4,000. To have somebody else put up bad data, or make false claims or to just deliver a line of ******** and screw it up, is really irritating.
The guy asked a question that is very complicated and difficult. I showed him the fork in the road. He choose to go down the path that is well worn.
That fine with me. I am only responsible for my own self.
