OK, so the required twist for a particular bullet, is based on itís length, and to a lesser degree on itís velocity.
BUT, the velocity is LESS in a handgun barrel.
Also, there may be less opportunity for the twist to take effect in a handgun barrel.
So, with these rifles that shoot handgun cartridges, (examples, 38-40, 44-40, 357, 44 Mag., 45 Colt, etc.)
Isssss,,,, it a good idea to use the SAME twist, that is used in a handgun? (Assuming the same bullets, that are used in a handgun)
When using heavier bullets than would be used in a handgun?
If a handgun twist is adequate for a particular bullet, would it be adequate for a rifle, also, or vise versa?
I don't wanna talk about what prompted this question, because I wanna narrow focus, on one thing at a time.
If you have something to offer, regarding any possible issues, with this, I'd appreciate hearing it.
