Full metal jacket-bullet

bullet where the bullet jacket is closed towards the front.
The full-jacketed bullet belongs to the dimensionally and mass stable bullets.
It does not fragment and only deforms minimally depending on the target resistance. Penetration and energy release are achieved due to a late “jack-knifing” of the bullet in the target medium.
In addition to the full-jacketed bullet there is the deformation bullet and the part fragmentation bullet.
