Everyone dreamed of cutting their favorite thing and understand what it was made of? The most interesting thing has always been in the forbidden, namely in weapons. Here, for example, cartridges ...

The cartridge (unitary cartridge, Latin unitas - "unity") is a munition of small arms and small caliber (up to 76 mm) cannons, with which the weapon is charged in a single trick.
A unitary cartridge may be an artillery shot or cartridge in which a projectile (bullet, canister or charge of a shot), a charge of gunpowder, an igniting element (primer-igniter) and, sometimes, additional elements are united in one piece by means of a sleeve. The term "unitary cartridge" appeared in the XIX century - the design of earlier cartridges did not include a capsule that was charged separately.

Special cartridge 7,62x5,6 mm Salvo Squeezebore with three brass bullets.
Designed for special weapons: the rear of the barrel is rifled cylindrical, and the anterior - conical, smooth.
In the rifled part, all three bullets move under the action of the powder gases as a single whole, but in the conical section of the bullet they are compressed, the rear ones are forced out from the front and from the trunk they leave separately.
Because of the reduction of the bullets, the caliber is indicated through the shot, since in the beginning the bullet has a caliber of 7.62 mm, and during the movement along the barrel channel it decreases to 5.6 mm.
And so these transformers came up in the 1970s!
Next on the list are training cartridges. As you know from the movies with Schwarzenegger, the rifle bullet remains lethal at a distance of several kilometers.

To simplify the construction of shooting galleries, during the training of personnel, special cartridges with a destructible light bullet or a reduced amount of gunpowder are used.

The murderous beauty of the cartridge in the lens of photographer Sabina Perlman
The photo project of Sabina Perlman, called "Ammunition", shows an unusual angle of bullets. Even if you have already encountered firearms, you are unlikely to be lucky enough to see her that way. Each cartridge has its own unique design. Symmetry of forms in combination with different types of charge makes each bullet a real work of art.
As Sabina herself says, the cross section allows you to see all the complexity and beauty of the form, along with the enormous force of destruction. This manifests the whole essence of man: create the beautiful, and then destroy it.
At the moment, the photographer's collection contains about 900 pictures of various types of bullets.
