Modern, low-energy ammunition can cause deep tissue damage

http://scienceblog.com/52017/modern-low-energy-ammunition-can-cause-deep-tissue-damage/

Specifically the article is talking about hollow point ammo in handguns. This type of ammunition is outlawed in combat with full metal jacketed rounds required but street fighters aren’t covered.

The point of the article is for ER docs to ensure that there is no deep tissue damage which will become life threatening later. And the term “low energy” is relative!
