This one: Full Metal Jacket

Impact characteristics
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_metal_jacket_bullet#Impact_characteristics

[EXCERPT]

"By design, fully jacketed projectiles have less capacity to expand after contact with the target than a hollow-point projectile. While this can be an advantage when engaging in targets behind cover, it can also be a disadvantage as an FMJ bullet may pierce completely through a target, leading to less severe wounding, and possibly failing to disable the target. Furthermore, a projectile that goes completely through a target can cause unintentional damage* downrange of the target".

--------------------------------------------------

*Seems to me JBC was the one 'unintentionally damaged'... being 'downrange of the target' and all.

Is this intact to you?

Seems to me that you are a maroon....You obviously don't understand what you posted...

Are you aware that JFK was "SEVERELY WOUNDED"   ....Do you actually believe the bullet that blew half his head away was a FMJ projectile???

So now you;re proposing that the massive wound on JFK's head was not made by an FMJ....  Do I have that right Chappie?

Andrew I followed the line of the mine protter!!!


So then, why did you place the other red dot on the back?  I assumed you were trying to show the actual entrance and exit points on the body.

Thatís because he was shot in the brain.

The non-severe woundings bit refers to bullets maintaining structural integrity through other parts of the body, usually the torso, which end of leaving focal, less serious and more easily treatable wounds than the explosive, diffuse and sometimes inoperable destruction left by hollow points.

The best you can hope for after being shot in the brain is not having too drastic behavioural or personality changes.

You're FOS....Many soldiers were shot through the head with military FMJ bullets and survived...some with no ill effects from the wound.

I have a friend who was shot through the head in Vietnam and he is perfectly normal...

As the article YOU posted says....FMJ bullets can pass right through a persons body and cause little damage.....JFK was not hit in the head by a FMJ bullet.....

The Vietnam Head Injury Study: "the low velocity penetrating fragment wounds typically sustained resulted in relatively focal defects". Something like shrapnel and handguns. Seems they couldn't find many who survived the bullet from a high-velocity sniper rifle.

Could be your friend's helmet stopped the bullet and a metal chip from the helmet then went through the brain.

If JFK had been shot through the neck with a bullet traveling @ 2700 fps from the TSBD Carcano as the WC

claimed, the shock wave created by that bullet would blown out a large hole in the front of his neck.

The doctors at Parkland described a 3 to 5 mm clean cut wound of entrance.
