I posted a new thread just as the last board closed. New, as in it had a new perspective on a subject that had been hit several times in the few days before.

My buddy is an AF Raven (an MP that flies a ton). While going through the Air Marshall's school for his training, he learned they use Bismuth for assulting an aircraft. When he told me this, it puzzled me for a bit. Then I remembered reading a bunch of reports of the older Bismuth powdering on bones during chicken shooting tests. They later fixed this by adding tin (I think) to the pellets. Wouldn't this older shot be better for destroying flesh and not penetrating walls (as much) as lead shot? What are the largest and smallest shot sizes that Bismuth is/was offered in? When did they start adding the ?tin?
