Re: Surviving the transonic barrier.

Thanks guys,

Thats the kind of knowledgeable replies I was looking for. I figured there would be something wrong with my idea because the answer seemed too easy. Although now I have to do a search and find out exactly what "gyroscopic stability ratio" is and how it works.lol I learn something everyday on this site. I'm glad I joined.

Thanks,

Chris

Rotational (gyroscopic) velocity is the mv x twist rate and tends to maintain at a higher rate than forward momentom. If rotational velocity gets to low for the given bullet, stability suffers.......Rich

Re: Surviving the transonic barrier.

I was doing some research on "mcgyro" program and saw this thread.

Question, does mcgyro algorithms do a good job with hollow points with different mass CG's?
