    Abstract

    Examples of some exceptional compositions of gunshot residue particles, formed by using different types of ammunition in the same firearm, are presented. The composition that may be encountered in casework may differ appreciably from the “classic” criteria for identification of gunshot residues. This fact must therefore be taken into account by the expert when interpreting case results, and thus, every case has to be dealt with on an individual basis.
