Re: PROGRESSIVE TWIST yay or nay??

Doesn't it seem the bullet gets a lot of jacket abuse with the gain twist? I can see it working better with driving band turned bullets. I would think something like a berger driven at fairly high speeds in a gain twist would get all torn up. What am I missing?

I agree the bullet jacket will be worked more. The rifling enfgraving wil change as the bullet travels down the barrel
