THE QUESTION OF BULLET HOLES IN COMMON M AT E R I A L S Is a particular mark on, or a hole in, an object caused by a bullet? This can be a relatively common question to crime scene technicians and the forensic laboratory. The answer is easy when a tracking through the hole leads to a projectile. It may not be so easy when one is presented with a defect in some object and no bullet is clearly associated with it.

With a properly selected patch and powder charge, the ball never directly contacted the bore of the gun during loading or discharge. At best only faint vestiges of the rifling might print through the patch and on to the ball. The weave of the fabric selected for the patch may be seen embossed on the side or base of the fired ball. The patch itself survives the discharge process and represents important physical evidence. At very close range (a few inches) it will follow the projectile into a wound track.
