When you think about how long the projectile is, it's plausible that it could tumble very weirdly as proposed by the Warren commission.
Those bullets are probably 160-170 grains. They stabilize very well, given the correct twist. Years ago, a British hunter by the name of W.D.M. Bell used a 6.5 Mannlicher to kill a great many elephants. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._D._M._Bell
