Modified Sheet Printing Method (MSPM) for the Detection of Lead in Determination of Shooting Distance



In this study the sheet printing method (SPM) for determination of shooting distance has been modified. Instead of cellulose hydrate foil, a plastic-based photographic paper was used as a substrate for transfer of metallic gunshot elements from cloth. The modified sheet printing method (MSPM) has been successfully tested in more than 100 shooting experiments. This technique saves time and has several additional advantages in comparison with the SPM method.
