Wooden bullets

I would imagine they need a slow twist and low velocity.

Re: Wooden bullets

I wonder if they can do a sap-alurgical match to see which tree the bullet was fired from?

Re: Wooden bullets

Sounds like practice bullets. The plastic ones came later. Probably loaded very mild so a new recruit would not immediately develop a flinch. Until shortly before the latest crisis one could get 7.62x51 Nato German ammo with plastic bullets.

Re: Wooden bullets

I remember seeing a magazine articular on WW2 ammo and the wooden tipped rounds were for when launching rifle grenades instead of using blanks.
