    Bullet Glossary

    Here's a glossary of bullet terminology that forum members might find useful:

    http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/bullet~gloss.html

    Be aware of an error in the entry for FMJ bullets. They are not outlawed by the Geneva Convention, as stated. It was The Hague Conventions that banned expanding bullets in warfare.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Oops, I mis-spoke. The glossary mistakenly states that FMJ bullets are specified, not banned, by the Geneva Convention.

    Good catch, dimmak.

    API: armor-piercing incendiary

    Designed to penetrate armor and set target on fire. Tips are usually painted light blue.




    Beautiful. Brings a tear to my eye. Not only does it go through armor, it lights **** on fire.
