Just a correction on that twist rate sti1911 the very first m16's were a 1:14 which would yaw at the slightest interference to the bullet(I E leaves in the jungle) with the 1:12 twist the m193 bullet will yaw after 2-3 inches of penetration, as opposed to the m855 and the 1:7 which yaws after 14-17 inches on an unarmored target. there are some interesting new loads out there but nothing has actually hit the battle fields in mass quantities save maybe the USMC barrier round.
