Do the math.

It takes a 200gr FTX .000867 seconds to exit a 16" 1:24 barrel at 2412fps (realistic accomplishment).

As it exits the muzzle It has rotated .66 revolutions.

Calculate Rev/sec
1/.000867 = 1153 X .66 = 761.24

Convert Rev/sec to Rev/min
761.24 x 60 (seconds in a minute) = 45,764 RPM

That's a lot of stability! Image


EDIT: if I don't have that right, I'll feel pretty foolish.

1:24 twist would produce 150 revolutions in a 100yds

1/2 of a rev per foot X 300ft = 150 revs

If the barrel is rifled 1 revolution per 24 inches (BM factory twist) and the bullet exits going 2412fps then wouldn't the bullet, at muzzle exit, be spinning at 1206 rev/sec or 72,360 RPMs?
