Exploding : Similar to the incendiary bullet, this type of projectile is designed to explode upon hitting a hard surface, preferably the bone of the intended target. A writer's two greatest fears are 1 to say something exactly backwards 'they attacked out of the east'; ooops, that should have been 'west'; or, 2 to say something that's easily proven wrong. Practice: Made from lightweight materials like rubber, waxwood, plastic, or lightweight metal, practice bullets are intended for short-range target work, only.

AP rifle bullets usually have a bullet tip filler usually lead which is designed to "cushion" the effect of the impact on the AP core, which is very hard and brittle and can break on impact without a "cushioning" effect. Two specifications for AP core material are: 1.

This may limit the benefit provided by the spread of each bullet at longer ranges. The bullet had a single cannelure and weighed grains. Importers and manufacturers of armor piercing ammunition must clearly identify each projectile by painting, staining, or dying the exterior with an opaque black coloring.

Likewise, if you rely on a firearm for defense, it is wise to know what it can do against barriers and body armor. The physics affecting the bullet once it leaves the barrel is termed external ballistics.

After firing for qualification we would have to detail strip the rifle and clean all parts with bore cleaner. Tracer material burns out after a certain amount of time.
