Another disappearing bullet

Likely many of you have heard about this but I stumbled upon it for the first time looking for info on the bullet fragments found inside the limo

Sounds like the stretcher bullet

"a spent, misshapen, but otherwise intact, bullet"

It should be noted that the bullet that hit Connally is probably still lodged in his thigh bone.  The stretcher bullet is not the "magic bullet".

There were three shots fired by the Carcano rifle in the book depository.  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login The second shot hit Kennedy and Connally, and the third shot also missed and wedged itself in the car, later found and ended up on the stretcher.

The fatal shot came from a different gun using different ammunition, the lead fragments of which were found in the car.

 Thanks Paul

James Dahl Are you saying the bullet found on the Parkland stretcher is not the magic bullet?

It's absolutely not the magic bullet because it's not fragmented.  The remains of the magic bullet are still lodged in Connally's thigh bone.
There were plans to dig them out of his thigh bone in 1993 but AFAIK he was never exhumed: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Carcano bullet 1: struck the street behind the car, AFAIK was never recovered
Carcano bullet 2: "magic" bullet, remains of which are still in the body of John Connally
Carcano bullet 3: struck the interior of the car and remained largely intact, discovered later by navy doctor, ended up on the stretcher in Parkland hospital, re-branded as carcano bullet 2
UNKNOWN BULLET FROM UNKNOWN GUN: struck Kennedy in the head, disintegrated/expanded on impact, fragments later found in skull

The three spent casings in the sniper nest confirm he fired three shots, and all three bullets are accounted for.  The problem is none of them are the one that killed Kennedy.

The bullet at Parkland came off Connally's stretcher Therefore one would expect it came from Connally

James, The bullet that struck Connally was never lodged in his thigh bone. The bullet fell out of his thigh onto his stretcher but there was a very tiny fragment of lead left in the flesh of the thigh.

The fatal shot came from the same rifle using the same ammunition.
