    Interesting to see the bullet is in two pieces. Copper jacketed hollowpoint.

      What's that small ring behind the bullet? It looks like the bullet is coming apart.

      Never mind, you added your description just as I posted.

      Was that a simple lead round, or was that second piece a jacket becoming separated from the lead core?

      This was a copper jacketed hollowpoint round. Perhaps it peeled back and then the resulting drag slid it all the way off?

      Jacketed rounds will certainly come apart like that. Many indoor ranges will not allow jacketed rounds for that reason. When the rounds hit the angled backstop, they fragment. The lead drops into the containment pool, but the copper jacket can ricochet directly backwards at the shooter.

      Interesting the amount of debris counter the bullet direction.

      Therre must be something wrong with the EXIF info... 4/5th of a second would have made the image pretty blurry.

      Theres nothing wrong with the EXIF. No shutter in hell can open and close in 500 nano seconds!
