There's a good article about bullet stability in the December 2012 issue of "Handloader" magazine, for those interested in long range shooting. Written by John Barsness, the article covers info on barrel twist rates, the "overstabilization" myth, understablization, etc.

Nope, seashells for filler material.....
I have heard of "surf n turf" before but not "surf n sky" or "surf n scratch" or..
never mind. I just never heard of shellfish and turkeys being used together.
.....maybe its for the oyster dressing?
