a while ago i came across an article about the delisle carbine, and it said something about it using a special kind of exploding ammo. where the mercury is placed in between the brass shel and the lead. does anyone have some info on this? thanks

It uses .45 and .45subsonic ammunition... perhaps a hollowpoint could be filled with some kind of explosive...

Mercury between the bullet and some kind of wadding? Might result in an interesting kinetic effect, where it forces the round deeper into the target or whatnot.

Mercury pressed back during firing from the force, hits target, goes forward. "Second Press" to the bullet, some-odd. Maybe.

we actually used to make these using hollowpoints and wax... when the bullet hits, the expansion of the bullet causes heat. The heat turns the murcury to gas and rapidly expands the bullet. Its an old varmint trick.

Nothing new really.

its basically a FMJ bullet with mercury in the tip, between to copper shell and the lead core
