THE PERFORMANCE OF SMALL ARMS AMMUNITION WHEN FIRED INTO WATER
NAVAL ORDNANCE LAB WHITE OAK MD
Pagination or Media Count:
Standard small arms ammunition was tested by firing into water from air. The test results show this ammunition to be relatively ineffective in water, having a lethal slant range of 1.5 feet. By proper design of the projectile, staying within the restrictions for standard ammunition, the lethal slant range can be increased to about 8 feet.
