    Pearlman hasn't provided captions for the bullets, but a Redditor named DrakeGmbH was able to recognize some of them, providing a little explanation.

    These are interesting from a mechanical standpoint, and they're also kind of pretty.

    Also, slightly related:
    Long exposure photos of a night battle in Vietnam. It looks spectacular.

    Should we ban guns because every time they are fired, they destroy the beautiful ammunition? :unsure:

    Guns don't kill people, guns kill ammunition.

    But slow motion bullet casings falling to the floor is a beautiful sound.

    Anyway I am glad there are were more options for the misspent youth choice beyond riding a skateboard and playing computer games. That said I probably would trade in my memories of Mario and Zelda for being able to identify ammo.

    Ive actually seen some of the the ingredients used to make certain types of shells. But only ones for hunting.

    I like the Riot control shell. sexy as hell.

    Yeah I read that in the source but I wish they went into more detail.

    Armed with this new information, I expect to be able to drink a cup of coffee and shoot a burglar with a tooth if the need arises.

    Dang, nice.
    I remember Mythbusters cut some bullets in half for some myth, but not that many. Also these pictures are much better looking than the ones they did.

    Still, Mythbusters explained what every layer and thing inside the bullet was for, and knowing is half the battle.
