    Good point!
    But the hole in your head will not look at all like that one!
    On either side.

    It will not be at all similar to that one.

    Unless you had two steel plates with an empty space between up there.

    One more observation: Notice the very well defined square edged and flat bottomed mark at the upper edge (in the picture) of the hole. Looks to me like a distinct pry mark where somebody likely pried out the spent bullet. Whoever did that already knew the answer to the mystery.
