Bullet

  • Measured in calibers according to the size of the rifle bore
  • Made of lead, lead alloy or copper
  • Can be jacketed, semi-jacketed or non-jacketed
  • Jacketed bullets are covered entirely with copper or copper alloy
  • Semi-jacketed bullets are partially covered with copper or copper alloy
  • Bullets also come in a variety of shapes and weights that affect the aerodynamics of the projectile as well as the desired reaction when striking a target
  • There are four major shapes: round-nose, spitzer, hollowpoint, wadcutter and pre-fragmented.
