A bullet spinning out of the barrel is likely to be more accurate, just like when a football is spinning out of the hands of a quarterback it is more likely to reach the receiver accurately. It's more aerodynamic.

As a new graduate of an equal opportunity course, I have to say, learn engrish or GTFO!
