Hey Bart what do you think of the yaw factor in spinning a bullet to fast . The Berger 30 cal 175gr VLD recommends a 1-13 twist or faster . Would 1-10 out of a 24" barrel be to fast ? Is there a chance the nose of the bullet will yaw at the longer ranges as velocity drops off . I hope yaw is the right term . I mean the nose of the bullet wants to lift up or stay up rather then follow the trajectory path
