refers to any type of intermediate barrier between the shooter and the target
The deviation of the bullets path due to contact with a barrier
- The type of bullet
- its structural integrity
Failure to Penetrate
when a round is completely stopped by an intermediate barrier
pieces of glass that fly off at impact
LOSS OF SIGHT PICTURE AFTER SHOT
Depending of the type of media or barrier, a target can be obscured following impact. Obscuring the target from follow on shots.
With thicker glass, the targets actual location can be distorted a differ from what the shooter actually sees. Much like water.
BTHP (Boat Tail Hollowpoint)
•Cup & Core design.
- -Tend to over penetrate soft tissue
- -Tend to hold together somewhat when subjected to media.
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.
Trophy Bonded Round
- •Jacket/Core are bonded together.
- -Exposed lead tip.
- -Plated jacket to core.
- -Designed to penetrate large targets or barriers.
- -Reduced accuracy
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.
- -Breaks in large shards
- -typically found in residential structures
- -Breaks in small beads
- -used where there is alot of human contact
- -sliding glass doors
- -automotive side and rear windows
- Double or triple paned glass
- -design to create air space between layers
-Multiple layers of glass sandwhiched between laminating material
Lexan (Plexi) Glass
- -not glass
- -transparent plastic ploymer
- -high risk of defraction and image displacement
- -high impact resistance and load bearing capable
