LITZ used the term. Still doesn't matter, the longer bullet needs to spin faster for the very reason I've stated. Litz would also agree. As the bullet slows force applied to the bullet makes it want to fall over just like a top, only on a different plane.

Steelbenz,

To see what I am describing read the chapter on bullet stability. Specifically the section on dynamic stability vs gyroscopic stability. (ie - the horseshoe graph).

I do agree with your statement on why a longer bullet needs a faster twist rate but I believe the chapter on bullet stability will clarify your understanding of the dynamics better.

Respectfully,
dsr

Vp has much to do with this as well.

(My emphasis added)


Steelbenz statement that rotation is degrading as fast as velocity is false according to Litz. It remains close to its muzzle value.

Looking at the problem from a different view ( remembering that rotation is basically constant for the bullets flight) and using the example earlier in this thread. A .308 with a muzzle velocity of 3000 ft/s in a 1 in 12 twist rate give 3000 rotations per second.

And let's say for sake of argument ( round numbers) that it has a 1000 yard velocity of 1100 ft/s and since we agree that the rotation is still 3000 rotations per second. Reverse solving for twist rate gives 1 in 4.4 twist rate.

Using JBM Ballistics stability calculator with the following inputs at the muzzle.
.308 caliber, 1.5 inches length, 220 grains, 0.0 plastic tip, 3000 ft/s, twist rate 12, temp 59, pressure 29.92. Gives a stability factor of 1.265 at the muzzle.

And as agreed to for this argument the rotation of the bullet at 1000 yards still has 3000 turns/second with a velocity of 1100 ft/s with an effective twist rate of 1 in 4.4. Re-running the JBM calculations with the new velocity and twist rate gives a stability factor of 6.775.

So we see that the bullet has gained stability.

Regards,
dsr

Velocity Pressure Wave and Drag or Shock wave from bullets tip and surface area along with the twist rate loss factor and the left and right running bow waves and tail waves resulting in a turbulent tail wave and turbulent wake wave that apply force/pressure as the bullet is pulled downward by gravity and the density factor of the air it travels through resulting in this gradually slowing revs p/m resultant from force rotational drag factor.  (Anyone remember the old free bore boost effect on rpm of bullet?)

Pressures across the surface of a body can be integrated to produce a resultant vector and a moment on the body.

I can can do the pressure calculations on the surface of a right cone relativly easly in supersonic flow but I don't know any relatively easy closed form solutions to a compression corner, expansion fan, expansion fan, compression corner for a body of rotation.

In the top most shadow graph one can see the shock waves as thin black oblique lines at the front and rear of the bullet. The expansion fans are the less distinct oblique lines between the shock waves.

Wah Wah did did you you say say?

We all have much to learn.

I understand some of what you posted above in differing degrees in a variety of other fields and scenarios but what is exactly are you referring or making a inference to in regards to the above posted question or the bullet rpm post?

I looked back at what I think you were trying to draw conclusion or reference to.  

So that you know you use a factor for the collisions.  Each Lab has their own calculations or Sub factors.

I don't care much what it does on the way to the " Boiler Room " just as long as it kills when it gets there!!!

Mine usually do!

The more you know about the flight characteristics of the projectile, the better prepared you are for putting it "on target" at whatever range you choose.  If you are a "control freak", you want to know these things...

Unless the Energizer Bunny is a freak, then I don't think so.

I wonder what the ballistic computer in the M1A1 tank includes in all of it's calculations when making a running shot. But since that round is fin stableized, and the fins impart the spin on the projectile instead of the barrel, then it's probably different in many ways.

Rifling in rifle barrels imparts gyroscopic stability to bullets and that prevents them from turning sideways.
