what heads do...

Recommended Posts

i realize it's an ongoing debate between all us amateur physicists, and that the matter has likely been settled once and for all to the satisfaction of each side,

What kind of bullet would have been used here?

More than likely a 5.56x45mm M855 fired from an M-16. This bullet is designed to tumble and break apart after travelling a short distance through soft tissue. I will be discussing this bullet in the thread "wound Ballistics" but, for now, this article should provide you with good reading.
