    Abstract

    Multibullet cartridges are used to create the salvo effect with increased hit probability and wounding capacity. These cartridges are not new; however, until recently, their usage has been confined to the military. The following report is the first published case concerning homemade duplex (double-bullet) cartridges manufactured in the Greater Miami area. When gunshot wound entrance and exit sites do not add up, multibullet cartridges must be considered.
