Abstract:

A comprehensive study was conducted for the Department of Justice to determine what factors influence human incapacitation by handgun bullets. An evaluation of the effectiveness of nearly all commercial handgun bullets was made. As part of the study, each bullet was recovered after impacting and penetrating a tissue simulant target. This report is a supplement to the overall program methodology and results presented in a BRL Report entitled, Ammunition for Law Enforcement Part I, Methodology for Evaluating Relative Stopping Power and Results. Presented in this report are the photographs of bullets recovered after firing during this program. Author
