Joe, that's the Lakota in me. I think in both languages. So often, when describing something it takes a different twist on how I tell it. My Capt. in the PD would catch me in the hall sometimes and quote something from one of my reports, and then give me that "odd Capt stare" and say stuff like "Really? You actually talk like that all the time? It's like working with 'Dances With Wolves' here sometimes! At least you don't scalp your prisoners!" then he'd give me a wink and say "Go get 'em Crazy Horse!" (an actual ancestor of mine, like a distant cousin sorta thing... Very distant! )
So, if I'm different in my telling of things, it's my background I suppose.

The above is to a site that provides insight to the
bullet to rifling question. A simple fill in the blank
search engine to tell your stability instead of guessing
and trying tons of different bullets.

I realize that this isn't a blue letter click on it and
it goes to the site thing. Sorry folks, I don't savvy
computer geek stuff....

And further due to the data gathered from this, my
perfect daily shooter bullets arrived yesterday. Hornady
62gr FMJBT w/cannalure. Loaded 10 with 25gr IMR 4320 and
got great results. A slight crimp helped to complete the
deal. I hunkered down and shot a 2 1/2" 10 shot group at
100m open sights off the rest. I took my time and that's
the best I could do. Perhaps with a scope it may have
been better, but seriously, on an AR15 carbine I think a
scope and other stuff strapped on it is ridiculous.

But back to the ballistic site's formula. Compared
results in the computed data echoed similar results in
the field. Given the data and altering the velocity in
realistic speed, one can see how it effects the bullet
stability in various twist rates. Interesting stuff.
