    Abstract

    The unique shape and ballistics aspects of a new variety of hand-reloadable ammunition manufactured by the United States Ammunition Co. are described. The thin copper plating of the projectiles will usually be lost after the weapon is fired. As a result, specific rifling marks will usually be lost, making identification difficult. The medical examiner should be aware of the implications of finding these projectiles during death investigations.
