I need help from someone with both a military mind and a grasp of the English language. I have the first but not the second.
In military jargon, a Serial Bullet Rifle (SBR) or Serial Flechette Rifle (SFR)means one bullet or one flechette at a time. So why are they called “Serial” and not “Single”. Or did somebody simply type in the wrong word somewhere along the line, and it stuck?
