Overnight, a bar owner was shot in the leg by a ricochet bullet. At the same time, there are those who ricochet between denial and rationalization. Yes: might put in a small charge, and skip the ball, ricochet it along the water. These wounds are the result of ricochet firing, a kind of practice which enables a shot to drop in the most unexpected places. The hissing rush of projectiles, as they struck the water and exploded by impact, or shrieked in ricochet overhead. Balls cannot ricochet ; and shells often sink into the mud, and thus are either extinguished or explode with but little effect.
Most ricochets are caused by accident and while the force of the deflection decelerates the projectile, it can still be energetic and almost as dangerous as before the deflection. The possibility of ricochet is one of the reasons for the common firearms safety rule "Never shoot at a flat, hard surface. Ricochets occur when a bullet or bullet fragment is deflected by an object rather than penetrating and becoming embedded in that object. Ricochet behavior may vary with bullet shape, bullet material, spin, velocity and distance , target material and the angle of incidence. High-velocity rifle cartridges have higher probability of bullet penetration, because increased energy released by an identical bullet may fracture or temporarily melt the target at the point of impact. Ricochets are more likely with handgun cartridges and low velocity rifle cartridges such as. Buckshot and shotgun slugs have similarly high ricochet probability, but ricochet range of smaller shot is lower than intact rifle or handgun bullet ricochets. Sectional density , or mass of the bullet divided by the frontal area of the bullet, increases penetration of resistant surfaces. Elongated, spin-stabilized bullets fired from rifled firearms have greater sectional density than spherical bullets of the same diameter made from the same material; and elongated rifle cartridge bullets have greater sectional density than short bullets of the same diameter handgun cartridges.
