Title (EN) FRANGIBLE BULLET TIP WITH FLUTED SIDES
(FR) POINTE DE BALLE CASSABLE À CÔTÉS CANNELÉS
Abstract:
(EN) A bullet for a small arms weapon including a bullet main body composed of solid metal and comprising a bore extending through a longitudinal axis of the bullet main body, such that upon impact with a soft target, the bullet main body exhibits a mushroom effect and a frangible bullet tip comprising a body composed of a partially sintered powdered metal matrix composite, the body comprising: a) a tail section with a cylindrical shape inserted into, and secured to, the bore of the bullet main body, the tail section comprising one or more channels located on an exterior surface, and b) a nose section comprising a pointed shape, wherein, upon impact, the bullet tip is configured to penetrate the soft target and fall away from the bullet main body. Upon impact, the bullet is configured to exhibit a penetration capacity of at least 800 joules and exhibit a controlled penetration distance of about 12-18 inches (approximately 30.48- 45.72 centimeters) in the soft target.
(FR) L'invention concerne une balle pour arme de petit calibre comprenant : un corps principal de balle composé d'un métal solide comportant un alésage s'étendant à travers un axe longitudinal du corps principal de balle de telle sorte que, lors d'un impact avec une cible souple, le corps principal de balle présente un effet champignon ; et une pointe de balle cassable comportant un corps composé d'un composite de matrice en un métal pulvérisé partiellement fritté. Le corps comporte en outre : a) une section de queue de forme cylindrique insérée dans, et fixée à, l'alésage du corps principal de balle, la section de queue étant pourvue d'un ou plusieurs canaux situés sur une surface extérieure ; et b) une section de nez de forme pointue. La pointe de balle est conçue pour, lors d'un impact, pénétrer dans la cible souple et retomber à distance du corps principal de balle. Lors d'un impact, la balle est conçue pour présenter une capacité de pénétration d'au moins 800 joules et une distance de pénétration contrôlée d'environ 12 à 18 pouces (environ 30,48 à 45,72 centimètres) dans la cible souple.
