Contrary to what you, or I, would think, the rotation of a bullet barely diminishes even at 1000yrds, although velocity drops off in comparison rather quickly the RPM hardly changes, even when the bullet drops below the sound barrier it stays pretty constant.
So, no, you do not need a faster twist for longer ranges.
