Thread: Bullets, projectiles and 'heads'!?

  1. #1

    Bullets, projectiles and 'heads'!?

    Can I ask a question as this is annoying the $%^k out of me.
    I'm English and have been involved in shooting for 40 years plus gunsmithing/armourer for a number of years. I have a library of reference books, even a copy of the "Gun and it's Development" from 1899 by Greener.
    No where except this forum have I come across someone referring to bullets as 'heads'.
    Is it a colloquial term specific to a county?

    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    No, but what chance do you have when morons like these are promoting the term!

    Sorry I didn't realise it was a problem that had been discussed before.
    I didn't know.

    As English is a constantly evolving language new meanings for old words are to be expected like people saying some think when it should be something I'm afraid you probably just have to get over it
