    Howdy, folks.
    Can you show me odd bullets? Like the THV. Old or new, I'd like to see something aside from the standard FMJ, SP, HP, WC/SWC, etc (you get where I'm going).

    Here's a link to an article in the Field Artillery Journal about an improved "boattail" design and really radical twisted shell design. It is quite possible they wouldn't work with small arms sized bullets at all but I thought it was pretty interesting.

    The link worked for me today.

    The article itself is over 30 years old. Anybody in the military know if the designs have been implemented?

    Well, Rob, that thread hits it on the head, but has no descriptions of their qualities/characteristics/names.
