Basically, you need a 1.5 stability I think? In a nutshell, we are losing some b.c. capability, in some bullets, by not twisting fast enough.
I found the link you were talking about.
Litz has the book for sale on his website : https://store.appliedballisticsllc.c...?code=featured
See ive heard that a stable bullet produces less frontal area and a higher B.C., but this last article was talking about better short range accuracy with long vld bullets, as well as better accuracy past the trans-sonic region, and better terminal ballistics as well.
They theorized that increasing the twist rate would overcome some imperfections in the bullet that caused the inaccuracy to begin with. I think they were shooting 30 cals with 1:9 twist or 1:8 maybe.
Its sounds feasible to me.
