What causes a bullet to yaw?
Yaw happens because a bullet on exiting a weapon may have residual contact with the barrel on one side, thus tending to distort its straight flight. This will temporarily be magnified because the bullet surface will not have been presented symmetrically to the aerodynamic effect of air friction.
What causes a bullet casing to get stuck in the barrel?
They are most often caused by negligence in the powder loading process (insufficient or no powder load), or a failure of the primer to ignite the powder at all. In the case of no gunpowder in the cartridge, the primer, when struck, produces just enough force to push the bullet into the barrel but no further.
What is bullet Keyholing?
keyholing (uncountable) (firearms) The tendency of a bullet fired down an excessively large barrel to wobble in flight and leave a keyhole-shaped puncture in the target.

What causes a stuck case?
One of the first common mistakes reloaders face is the stuck case. It can be caused by too much or too little lube. Too much and a vacuum can be formed causing the case to become suctioned into the die. Too little lube and friction is the culprit.
What temperature causes a bullet to explode?
A bullet will melt if it is exposed to a thousand degrees fahrenheit. The primer will pop when a loaded cartridge is exposed to a few hundred degrees. There are Cartridges that don't explode.
Why does the m16 bullet tumble?
The damage caused by the 5.56 mm bullet was originally believed to be caused by "tumbling" due to the slow 1 turn in 14-inch (360 mm) rifling twist rate. However, any pointed lead core bullet will "tumble" after penetration in flesh, because the center of gravity is towards the rear of the bullet.
How Cartridge Length Can Cause Keyhole Problems In Cast Bullets
Why do bullets rise after leaving the barrel?
What causes bullet tumbling?
Rifle rounds have an elongated, oblong shape and so they often tumble. When they strike, the bullets rotate, and more of their surface hits the body. Bullets can also increase the surface area that transfers energy to targets by expanding, as in the case of hollow-point rounds.

What causes bullet to tumble?
That problem is solved by making more of a bullet's surface area actually come in contact with its target. Rifle rounds have an elongated, oblong shape and so they often tumble. When they strike, the bullets rotate, and more of their surface hits the body.
