Re: RPM/engraving vs. Terminal Ballistics
dwm is right.
The rotation of a bullet also adds to the overall energy of the bullet, not just the forward motion.
On the other hand, you cant turn a 30-06 into a 300 ultra mag by turning the bullets faster.
Also, these exact topics and calculations are covered in "Understaning firearm ballistics" by Robert Rinker

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
