78. This is used for cutting the lead discs which are to be pushed through the barrel. Lead bullets were first used, but these became unobtainable because of war restrictions. This turned out to be a fortunate circumstance as the lead discs were found to work much better than lead projectiles. Discs cut by steel dies have accurate, reproducible diameters whereas the diameters of purchased bullets vary considerably. Furthermore, the rifling meter gives the best results when a moderate pressure is required to force the lead object through the barrel.

A. “ However, the impression of the firing pin made on a thin sheet of copper (shown at the left) shows that the pin actually has a rectangular striking surface, rounded at the lower end. Since only this lower portion of the pin strikes the rim of the shell a semicircular effect is produced. Such vagaries are frequently encountered. Fig. 23. Semicircular firing pin impressions.

Not infrequently a bullet is brought to the laboratory and the examiner is asked what kind of a gun should be looked for, there being no gun or suspect and perhaps even no known motive for the crime that has been committed. In such a situation it is obvious that the investigation of the case might be much simplified if the authorities could be given some information concerning the type and the probable (or even possible) make of the gun from which the evidence bullet had been fired.
