Yawing motion of a 
M193 bullet cal. 5.56 x 45

Yawing motion of M193 bullet

Imagine that the bulletīs CG moves on a straight line in the middle of the box,. Then the spiral-like curve indicates the spatial movement of the bullet' s tip along the range in calibres (0...8000 calibers). In this example, the M193 bullet shows a small precession instability.
