Special purpose ammunition

I know at least one guy who will read this article (long live GBP) https://nationalinterest.org/blog/reboot/dum-dums-darts-and-mini-rockets-five-deadliest-things-fired-out-gun-163695

With the first image shown there I doubt it is worth to read…


Pepper will be quick to point out that the opening picture is of a group of WW I-era flechettes that were dropped onto troops below from aircraft, not fired from guns.

I will point out that the section on 13mm Gyrojets does actually have a couple of correct statements mixed in with the typical BS (rocket boosters, etc.). One is that the 13mm Gyrojet has a “width” of over half an inch. The 13mm Gyrojet’s “width” (a.k.a. diameter) is 0.51 inch.

Well I got to the 3rd paragraph with the Dum-Dum bullets having an X cut in the nose. What a bunch of drivel & nonsense.

Excellent in one area. As an example of an article composed totally from any & everything without any fact checking.

Pete, that’s EXACTLY the reason I’ve posted it. Gives you an idea of how the public may be fed “fake news”. The same applies to medical news/regulations, especially recently, when these new rules are promulgated by lawyers, with no medical/biological education.
