Re: Compressed air trapped in the hollow cavity of SMK ??
Probably what you are seeing is the damage caused by "temporary cavitation". There are 2 things a bullet causes as it passes through flesh, 1: a wound chanel, and 2: cavitation. What that basically is, is like a shock wave in the flesh as the bullet passes through. It can actually tear meat and tissue of of bones.
When a bullet causes a 1/2" wound channel, depending on the density of the aniaml and the energy of the bullet, it will cause a 6-16" wound area cause by this cavitation.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
