Bullet Hole Identification Kit: Case Report
A field kit for the identification of bullet holes using chemical spot tests for lead and copper was used in an investigation of an accidental wounding during a military exercise. Based upon the results obtained using the kit, it was possible to detect the bullet holes in question, and thus, reconstruct the path and direction of the bullet. It was further possible to estimate the type and diameter of the bullet.
