Re: Bullet Tractability

That's interesting S1. By how much do they do this--I know that's a pretty general question, just looking for a ballpark figure--a tenth of a degree, a half, etc?

Have you ever seen anything documented on a bullet that kept the same attitude as the bore? If so, what happened to its BC at long range?

Re: Bullet Tractability

Thanks, thanks, thanks.

However, this section doesn't explicitly address the tractability issue, although it clearly implies it with the analysis to the pitching moment.

Your suggestion regarding the supporting references is a good one and I'll go there next.

By the way, for anyone who has followed this thread this far, you may be interested in
this graphic which shows the fast and slow oscillations of the bullet tip as it trys to stabilize.
