3D printed bullets pack a punch when it comes to hitting the target
When choosing a bullet to fire from your gun, the precision of the bullet make and its material determines the accuracy of shot, apart from the skill of the shooter of course. There are plenty of things manufactured using 3D printed technology, including guns and other firearms too, so why not have 3D printed bullets? Taofledermaus, Youtube user has uploaded a video showing the first ever 3D printed bullets (filled with lead shots) of different weights and shapes being fired at varying targets using a Mossberg 590 shotgun.
It only took an hour to 3D print each of these bullet pellets and the bullets managed to penetrate the dartboard and the plastic cans on which the target was resting. One of these bullets was nicknamed Red Rocket having a honeycomb design with strips of plastic and yet another is named the Tri-Factor round having three points on the end.
