Thread: Bullet HEADS !!!!! are BULLETS !!!

    Bullet HEADS !!!!! are BULLETS !!!

    I remain puzzled that so many shooting folk seem unaware that the thing that comes out of a rifle barrel when it is fired is exactly the same thing that

    was previously atop the brass case before firing & is called, simply, the "bullet".

    It forms a component of the loaded "cartridge" ( or complete "round") together with the case, powder & primer. Does anyone call any of these latter parts

    the 'bullet tails', 'bullet feet' or whatever?

    When zeroing, does anyone ask or check where their 'bullet head holes' appear on the target?

    Grumpy rantlet over.

    [I must get out (stalking) more].

    Just to be annoying, why then do you get boat tail bullets? If there are tails why can't there be heads. Lol.

    I'm one of the grumpy ones. As the Queen of hearts says (I paraphrase) off with the heads of people who call bullets "heads" it will teach themm a lesson!
