I asked a question some years ago about rate of rifling twist vs. rpm's concerning stabilization. The answer I received by those in the know about external ballistics was that rpm is not the key to stabilization because even though the rpm is higher with higher velocity, the rotations per a given distance of bullet flight is not. The rate of twist of the rifling of the barrel will determine the stabilization of the bullet for the most part.
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.
