Bullets Precisely Split in Half (6 photos)

These images are truly fascinating. (source)








  • Uma pena.. uma maravilhosa postagem mas.. se tivesse o calibre e indicasse ao menos uma arma que utiliza cada tipo de munição seria muito mais interessante, mesmo assim perdi muito tempo admirando as engenhocas.

    • Em um site estrangeiro eu achei essa descrição aqui, feita por um dos visitantes. Não sei se confere, mas aí vai:

      1..38 Special Glaser.
      2..224 BOZ

      1. Some flavor of 5.56×45 loaded with a steel projectile in a copper half-jacket to protect the bore.
      2. 5.56mm XM216 SPIW Flechette.
      3. 7.62/.220 Salvo Squeezebore.

      1. 9x19mm – looks much like a British 9mm MkIIz.
      2. 9x19mm – solid brass hollow point – unsure of maker.
      3. 9x19mm – either a tracer or possibly an explosive projectile. Not sure what that filler is.

      Photo 4 –
      1. 7.62x51mm Plastic short-range training tracer.
      2. This one is curious – it looks like a 7.62x51mm but the interior looks like a ‘sabotage’ cartridge as it appears to be loaded with a blasting cap and a small amount of explosive. Edit – Upon further consideration, I believe it may be a 7.92mm Mauser rather than a 7.62mm NATO based on the case dimensions and bullet construction.
      3. 6.5x55mm wood bullet blank (guessing at the cartridge on that one, it looks right!)

      Photo 5 –
      1..450 Adams – the case appears too short and the bullet is too short, the cavity too shallow and it doesn’t have enough grease grooves to be a.455 MkII.
      2..38 Speer Target.

      Photo 6 –
      1. 9x19mm Cobra “High Safety Ammunition” – steel darts inside a polymer sabot.
      2. 9x19mm Israeli riot control – steel balls embedded in amber resin.
