This is what I could find online, sounds like ballistics might not be that accurate after all.

Good articles- and I do not disagree with them. Issue is really not ballistics or fingerprints- it is the skill of the ballistics TECH or the fingerprint TECH.

And don't forget the recent "busting" of forensic "scientists" who worked in police crime labs and FBI crime labs who were found to falsify evidence to support whatever the cops/FBI wanted them to say in court.

The wrap around bullits is called paper patching . U wrap the bullit in a spacific thickness of paper and this creats a tighter seal in the barrel. But leaves the bullit like it was saboted...
F.K.

I heard they were not accurate because twist rate for weight and velocity are not right
