what is a monolithic solid bullet
What is a Monolithic Solid Bullet?
  • It is a bullet that is made to travel in a straight path inside an animal.
  • It is a copper alloy.
  • It is approximately 61.5% copper, 35% zinc 0.5% tin, and 3% lead.
  • The bullet gains most of its strength from the homogeneity of the alloy.
conventional bullets
Conventional Bullets
  • They can break up and deform inside the animal.
  • This can make the bullet move off target and not humanely kill the animal.

Monolithic Solid Bullets
  • It will hold its shape and it will better travel in a straight path.
advantages disadvantages
Advantages/Disadvantages
  • It is able to hold its shape and it will not pierce steel plate.
  • Weight?
  • The monolithic solid bullet costs about twice as much a conventional bullet.
