Also known as wound ballistics is that
branch of science that deals with the

The bullets design, as well as its impact
velocity, plays a huge role in how the energy
is transferred.

Plays a very significant role in what
kind of wound cavity the bullet will
make in soft tissue.

Normally smaller and quite symmetrical in
comparison to the exit wound, which can
sometimes be ragged with skin, tissue, and
muscle and bone damage. Entrance wounds are
often ringed with the residue of gunpowder and

do not normally contain
explosives, but damage the
intended target by impact and
penetration. The word bullet is
sometimes colloquially used to

case/shell, powder, and primer.
A modern cartridge consist of the following:

1.The bullet, as the projectile
2.The case, which holds all parts together
3.The propellant, for example gunpowder
or cordite
4.The rim, which provides the extractor on
the firearm a place to grip the casing to
remove it from the chamber once fired.
5.The primer, which ignites the propellant.
