Development of hollow projectiles was first advocated to achieve silent low pressure signal projectiles having higher performance. Although the present effort concentrates on small arms specifically 7.62 mm, the confirmed fundamental theory applies to all sizes of hollow projectiles. The report can thus serve as a basis for 1 evaluating specific hollow projectile developments and 2 formulating programs to develop a wide spectrum of hollow projectile configurations tailored to a diversity of functional requirements.
