There are a lot of things wrong with the SBT including this photo, but the shot entering the upper back, and exiting the throat under the tie is not one of them. You appear to put the exit point under the chin. That may be how you would wear a tie, but it is not where JFK had his tie knot.. JFK was also not sitting with his back against the seat back. As seen in the Croft photo, he was leaning a bit forward.

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?

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.
