I doubt that it would be tumbling since the rotation imparted by the rifling doesn't slow much over that distance/time. It may have yawed at transonic but that yaw would stop some place after passing sonic. So it would not be a continuous yaw. Gyroscopic effect would be maintained. Tumbling would almost certainly not be happening.
