Section 9: Hunting
Subject: Black Rifles In The Field Msg# 827676
I do believe killing big game animals and killing a man are to different things.|
First off the military used FMJ bullets. Yes that bullet will kill both mainly via blood loss. Yes shots in the right place (head or spine) will kill instantly both man and animal, But an animal is geared to survive and will keep running as long as there is any threat before it bleeds out. Man on the other hand the minute he knows he is hit will lay down and scream, "Medic!" and will start calling for his Momma because he knows he is about to die. The animal knows something bit him and knows something is after him and he knows it's a threat before but doesn't "know" he's gonna die because he is shot.
In many States FMJ ammo is illegal for this reason but not limited to just this reason.

I am under the impression that military rounds are lighter and smaller to allow carrying more ammo, as well as the notion that it may be better to wound an enemy than to kill him.
If this is true, then it would seem a hunting round should be something designed to kill and not wound.
