  1. Monolithic Solid Bullets By Brandon Butschek MEEN 3344 Material Science

  2. 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.

  3. Monolithic Solid Bullet

  4. 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.

  5. Monolithic Solid Bullets • It will hold its shape and it will better travel in a straight path.

  6. 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.
