Important note:

This post will be untacked and the links have been moved to the Ammo FAQ tacked to the top of the forum.



brouhaha has all of the articles hosted on his website. A note about file sizes: Some articles had to be scanned grayscale, and the size ballooned up quite a bit. I tried scanning in B&W as much as possible, but some pages needed the detail of grayscale. JPG's would have been smaller, but I would have had individual files for all pages, and that was too much of a hassle for me.

The quality of the material varies. Some were original articles, other were copies made by Dr. Fackler before sending them on to me.

Here is a list of links:

1) "Theodore Kocher and the Scientific Foundation of Wound Ballistics" (1.3M)

2) "Ordnance Gelatin for Ballistic Studies" (170K)

3) "Bullet Fragmentation: A Major Cause of Tissue Disruption" (1.6M)

4) "Effects of Small Arms on the Human Body" (608K)

5) "Wounding Mechanism of Projectiles Striking at More than 1.5km/sec" (1.5M)

6) "A reconsideration of the Wounding Mechanism of Very High Velocity Projectiles - Importance of Projectile Shape" (1.4M)

7) "Wounding patterns of military rifle bullets" (4.9M)

8) "Wounding Potential of the Russian AK-74 Assault Rifle" (606K)

9) "Ballistic Injury" (390K)

10) "The ideal police bullet" (376K)

11) "Applied Wound Ballistics: What's New and What's True" (436K)

12) "Performance of the Winchester 9mm 147 Grain Subsonic Jacketed Hollow Point Bullet in Human Tissue and Tissue Simulant" (2.9M)

13) "The Shockwave Myth" (1.4M)

14) "ACR candidates: assessing their wounding potential" (358K)

zhukov, you are awesome. The only thing that could be better is if we can get everyone that picks up a rifle/handgun to download and read these articles. Many thanks.

Thanks for taking the time to do this! Appreciate it very much.

ZHUk, Great Job! Troy or Brouhaha how about thumbtacking this to the top?
Link Posted: 7/11/2003 10:22:15 AM EDT
Anyone want to distribute the load of converting them to a more readable format?

Thanks for the effort zhukov! I appreciate it.

I can open the PDF fine, but the text is not so legible. I'm willing to transcribe one or two manually. It would also shrink the download for people with slow links.

By all means - please do so. I know that a couple of the articles aren't of the greatest quality, as they were poor copies to begin with. I *might* do some of the same things and re-scan the pictures, which would help. For the time being, most people can read them fine, so it's going to be a long-term project. If I were generating a PDF from a MS Word document, it would indeed be a lot smaller. I tried Adobe PageCapture, but that gave crappy results. I have Office XP Pro, and it comes with a OCR program also (and actually does a decent job), but it doesn't retain page layout. If you have spare time on your hands and want to e-mail me the Word (or whatever) file, I'll scan the disagrams and inset them into the document. I'm sure most people would appreciate the smaller document size over retaining the original page layout.

Just wanted to thank you for putting up these links. Using the information here greatly helped me in dispelling A LOT of myths the guys at the dept. were hanging on to. After my lecture, they sure looked at their guns differently. But, I did have 1-2 guys that thought all of this was just a bunch of scientific BS and that they wouldn't listen to "lab geeks shooting at JELL-O." Hey, I tried...LOL.

Thanks for putting all of this together in one place! I've read much of it before, but now I have it together for quick reference. Not to be a smart-azz, but what happened to number 12?

Some of them are nice, some look like crap and are unreadable.

The text is usually fine. I agree that the diagrams in some of them are very poor. Dr. Fackler sent me some originals, some copies. There wasn't a lot of care taken when they ran them through the copier. My originals aren't any better.

BTT To keep this from being archived.

Sweet! I've been looking for a place that had his articles consolidated in one location. Thanks!

Bump to prevent archiving.

Looking at the difference in wound cavity between an AK-47 and an M-16 I have reached this conclusion….



I don’t want to be shot by either.

I keep getting directed to a site that has nothing to do with ammo.

Read one post above yours.

It may be time to find a new host server.

I recall reading that FN's new 5.7 SS197 40gr Vmax gives dramatic fragmentation along 12"+ of penetration.

Could be interesting with a 50 round P90 mag
