Lack Of Understanding

Determining what twist is best for what bullet weight.

Take the bore diameter, bullet length and velocity and plug them into a calculus equation.

Walla!  Done!

I can't do that.  It's been near 20 years since I took calculus and I spent almost all of that time actively trying to forget it.

However, there's an easier way.

Rote memorization of "this loading goes with this twist".

You don't understand why, but you do know what.

That's actually enough.
