Default spinning bullet on ice

I wasn't sure where to put this so since it involved a pistol I decided to put it here.

I was watching mythbusters and saw them do a myth about a bullet that continues spinning after it stops moving foward, here's the results. (it succeeds about 1 min 53 sec in) (cool slow motion at 2 min 47 sec in)

Just thought it was cool

I like it. There is nothing like a visual to understand something like that. Never really thought about how fast a bullet spins, but for some reason the rotation speed suprised me.

I will agree with that, I watch her (mythbusters) all the time.
