So Ron explained it very well. A good point he made was not the weight of a copper bullet that makes it unstable but the length vs the twist of the barrel.
I thought it was informative. Your thoughts. And I yes the groves on the bullets are for less friction and pressure.
And stabilize on the barrel lands.

I thought it made sense since the density ls less for copper it has to be longer to obtain the same weight. There for harder to stabilize if the twist of the barrel is not enough twist. Thoughts
