    gee some how i am guessing EVERY bullet was DAMAGED.
    object is to collect undamaged, fired bullets.

    A friend used Linters a by product from cotton for catching lead and tin bullets. The extensive testing he was doing at the time also required that the bullets could not to be deformed while being trapped.

    Leads

    Years ago at a Sunday Match, in the winter with a nice warm day, the boys went to recoup the shot targets. They found bullet jackets on the top of the snow with the leads blown out the back. Jackets looked like new. My feeling is that hydraulic pressure from the wet snow when the bullets hit knocked the lead out the back end. (your impressions). Roll a big snowball.
