Killing with a large caliber
Killing someone with a large caliber bullet has a distinct satisfaction to it; pink mist.
A smaller round penetrates and precisely slices through the target creating a relatively small wound cavity and causing hydrostatic decompression or bleed out. A large caliber bullet, such as the 50 cal, creates a large temporary wound cavity that rapidly expands. With a projectile measuring 12.7 millimeters, the 50 punches a thumb-sized hole through targets at 2800 feet per second. The expansion of the temporary wound cavity may continue through the target causing a significantly larger exit wound to occur; pink mist.
Part of a collection of shorts… stay tuned.
