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,

BUT -

just in case anyone has forgotten, here's a pretty definitive example of what heads do, in general, when hit by a bullet (also note a familiar red 'cloud')...

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.
