Abstract:

Caliber .14 spin-stabilized projectiles were fired into gelatin and measurements of the loss in velocity of the projectiles were obtained. The yaw angle at impact and the striking velocity were varied these were related to the energy absorbed by the gelatin. The probability of incapacitation as a function of range was computed. The effect of two different nose shapes on the probability of incapacitation was studied.
