Twist rate

I am new to the forum, so please forgive me if I am bringing up an old subject that has been beat to oblivion, but in all the posts I have read it seems one point is missing. The stabilization of a particular bullet in not in the weight of the bullet, but rather the length of the projectile and how that particular twist rate of a particular caliber rifle at a produced fps will or will not stabilize out to a selected distance. The more powder behind the projectile the better it will stabilize to a point depending on twist and length of projectile. Less fps needs faster twist to stabilize to a longer distance. This of course all depends on projectile length and distance trying to achieve stabilization. Please chime in and correct me if you think any of this is incorrect. This is my understanding.
