    Question on Ballistics.

    Hello, I've watched a movie, don't remember the name, where a guy "planted" some cartidgres
    on a determined place, pretending the shots were there, where actually they happened on a diferent location.
    The cops found the cartidgres on the fake-location, as well the projectiles inside a body who has been shot by the guy,
    BUT, they didn't figure that the projectiles inside the body WASN'T from the cartidgres on the ground..

    So I've kept with a though, do a forensic study determine that an X projectile is from an Y cartidgre?

    I think it was a 9m or a .22 handgun.

    No real way to tell - they can tell the gun it was fired from. If there were copper deposits on the brass maybe they could match it. Just my opinion based on my experience - I'm not a forensic scientist or anything.

    ooh ya, In NYS we has "ballistic fingerprinting" the program has been in effect since 2003 at a cost of 30 million dollars, and it has not done one darn thing to solve any crime.

    What a freaking waste of money

    but this "machine" can indeed 'match' the cartidgre and the projectile?

    in a word, no.
    ballistic fingerprinting can match a bullet to a gun, Posabliy match a case to a gun. but nothing can match a bullet to a case.
