Pretty sure that's a dog.
Can we see the ass end please? Any markings there?
heres a pic with his greasy lil nubs
>buddy thinks its a 9mm
Looks like it’s written in runes, you may have found the magic bullet
Dominion Arsenal production .455 Mk. II. Probably cordite loaded, year of production is part of the markings.
More likely intended for a S&W Hand Ejector since Canada never had many Webleys.
Meant for mogging wogs innit
Did your friend happen to travel in time from ww1?
A multi-amputee from Iraq War thanks you for finding his... apendage.
It looks similar to so many rounds I'm vaguely aware of but I cant find any that actually match. My first thought was one of the short .32 cartridges but I'm not seeing any it could be after a cursory look.
its got the lil dominion arsenal of Quebec on the back and looks like 1930?
Looks like a .455 webley mk 2 pistol round
oh shit i think you might be right
made in quebec and the webley would have been used in canada too so yeah i think webley it is
That jus might be it
What are the ballistic advantages of cylindrical bullets? Asking unironically
They make cleaner holes on paper targets
muh stoppin powah (semiseriously)
Mk IV & V are essentially wadcutters. They have wide meplat, which cuts tissue/bone, better penetration than round nose that can deflect more easily/ have less consistent path inside target. With softer lead, acts more like an HP and expands (a little) for bigger wound track. Mk III is just a HPWC, would not want to get shot with that, it will probably expand to .65-.75 caliber. Also, you can get higher grain weight in same or shorter OAL, bigger bullet in same package can potentially mean more energy on target.
It was a primitive way to make better wounds without expanding ammunition, same reason SWC and wadcutters used to be carried all the time by cops before JHPs became commonplace
Beautiful, hi-res fingerprint pic right there. Make sure to turn all murder bullets in to the proper authorities immediately.
