The Glaser Safety Slug and the Velex/Velet Exploding Bullet
The Glaser Safety Slug and the Velex/Velet Exploding Bullet are both designed to fragment on impact with their targets. Recognition of these rounds after firing is possible by the use of roentgenography and wound tract examination, and the characteristic appearances are described and illustrated. Despite the degree of physical disruption of the bullets recovery of the copper jackets will permit useful comparison microscope examination. In the case of the Velex/Velet Exploding Bullet recovery of the percussion cap may also provide useful information.
