    What kind of damage would result from an incendiary/tracer round, 9mm, fired into/at a person?

    Just curious....

    A bullet hole with extra burn marks and a lot of funny questions from the DA?

    LOL.

    I was 'thinking' (uh-oh, that's dangerous!) that if it was as hot as it says it is (~3k degrees), that it would burn a hole as far as it could before it cooled down leaving a relatively bloodless cauterized wound..

    (ETA: Would be a great home defense solution if that were the case, -1 intruder without the bloody mess, heh)

    What about HE rounds?

    Anyone have any range experience, or testing with ballistics gelatin?

    Apparently in some loadings less lethal than usual.

    Probably burn a hole clean through to China.

    Hes talking about Incendiary rounds, those are tracers.

    Never mind, I saw he wrote tracer too! It helps to read the whole post!

    Haha. I can't help but think of one of those 3k degree rounds grazing a curtain or lodging into a wooden door frame. Grab the 'mallows!
