  1. Media
    refers to any type of intermediate barrier between the shooter and the target
  2. Deflection
    The deviation of the bullets path due to contact with a barrier
  3. Fragmentaiton
    • The type of bullet
    • its structural integrity 
    • durability
  4. Failure to Penetrate
    when a round is completely stopped by an intermediate barrier
  5. Spalling
    pieces of glass that fly off at impact
  6. LOSS OF SIGHT PICTURE AFTER SHOT
  7. Depending of the type of media or barrier, a target can be obscured following impact.  Obscuring the target from follow on shots.
  8. REFRACTION
  9. With thicker glass, the targets actual location can be distorted a differ from what the shooter actually sees.  Much like water.
  10. BTHP (Boat Tail Hollowpoint)
  11. •Cup & Core design.
    • -Tend to over penetrate soft tissue
    • -accurate. 
    • -Tend to hold together somewhat when subjected to media.
  12. Accubond (Bonded Bullets)
    • •Jacket/Core are bonded together to prevent separation. 
    • -Tipped bullet to increase B.C. and initiate expansion. 
    • -Tends to over penetrate when faces with nothing but soft tissue.
  13. Trophy Bonded Round
    • •Jacket/Core are bonded together. 
    • -Exposed lead tip. 
    • -Plated jacket to core. 
    • -Designed to penetrate large targets or barriers. 
    • -Reduced accuracy
  14. Solid Copper or Bronze Bullet
    • -Designed to be a penetrator with some expansion on soft tissue. 
    • -Usually hollow point design to initiate expansion. 
    • -Usually a longer bullet to distribute the weight.
  15. Annealed Glass
    • -Breaks in large shards
    • -typically found in residential structures
  16. Tempered Glass
    • -Breaks in small beads
    • -used where there is alot of human contact
    • -sliding glass doors
    • -automotive side and rear windows
  17. Insulated Glass
    • Double or triple paned glass
    • -design to create air space between layers
  18. Laminated Glass
    -Multiple layers of glass sandwhiched between laminating material
  19. Lexan (Plexi) Glass
    • -not glass
    • -transparent plastic ploymer
    • -high risk of defraction and image displacement
    • -high impact resistance and load bearing capable
