    A twelve-parameter classification system for jacketed sporting rifle bullets that allows the examiner to gather and record systematically data that can be used to identify the manufacturer, design, weight, and cartridge loading of damaged and intact bullets is presented. The twelve parameters are an identification number, manufacturer, weight, diameter, cartridge, base design, length of bearing surface, color, shape, location and description of crimping cannclure, location and description of other cannelures, and miscellaneous notes.
