Also called less than lethal
ammunition. These stingers
can be launched from a specially made weapon or an ordinary firearm modified to shoot these extremely light projectiles. Think airsoft
on steroids. Was most recently used in various globalization
protests all over the world. In the current on going war on terrorism
, these bullets will not see any action.
Aim for center of mass as the light projectile but high velocity has enough energy to actually kill a person if hit in a vital area such in the head area.
There also are very light .357" rubber or plastic bullets available which can be handloaded onto .38 special cartridges and fired from normal .38 special or .357 mag revolvers. Only the primer's explosion is used to propel these projectiles and no additional powder need be used, also called primer powered. Good for stunning or killing rats or as practice ammo.
