    Default bullets & twist rates

    Found this website while I was reading up on rifle barrel twist rates. Maybe some of you have seen it before, for those that have not I found the tables and formulas that the author worked on getting together interesting and useful. Here is the link to his website:

    That guy is smart...wonder if he learned it from Murphy! Speaking of Murphy, what happened to him? Some people want to meet Micheal Jordon others Tiger Woods(mostly hookers), I just want to meet Murphy!

    Good question, where is Murphy these days? Haven't seen a post from him on the shooting forum in months. Wonder if he is hard at work designing another rifle cartridge or series of cartridges. We all know that he is the Guru when it comes to cartridge design.

    Thank you! Truth is when I joined this forum I thought I knew a lot concerning the shooting world and all that goes with it. I was wrong....there are lots of guys up yonder that have taught me much, Murphy being the chief professor!

    Well truth be known I have been reloading rifle and pistol ammo since 1981 and I still learn things from all you guys. Nuk - thanks for your OP on this subject. I've never seen that before.

    Thanks everyone.

    That guy visited the following page, and even copied the pic to his own site. Amazing. I wonder if he had permission?
