Why a neat hole is formed when a bullet is fired from a close range?


Question asked by: gmimimi

Asked on: 30 Dec 2009

It depends on the angle of entry and the type of material that is being hit, also whether they are moving at all relative to each other or not. Only in particular circumstances will there be a clean and neat circle created at the point of impact.
