Sabine Pearlman's photographs find beauty in the destructive engineering of ammunition with this series of cross-sections of bullets cartridges from a Swiss bunker. They reveal the complexity inside each case.

There are certainly some serious engineering going into many cartridges and bullets these days. Carefully tapered walls, and proper bullet seating, etc. Blueprinting and careful custom tailored handloading can produce amazing results in a properly crafted firearm.

A lot of these would be illegal to use in international warfare. (Hague Convention)

Most of those look like cannon rounds ? Flechette round ? Interesting. "Photographed in a WWII bunker"... LOL. to imply that these are WWII rounds. Might be, but only a complete idiot would saw a round in half without pulling the primer. I assume he cut them in a coolant flood environment.

Just as well.

I doubt that images of cross-sections of cartridges would be very helpful in just about any warfare, let alone international warfare.

Absolutely.

I'd love to see some big hi-res cross-section images of modern rifle and pistol rounds, especially of boat tail and hollow point ammo. And maybe some sabot rounds.

The blue rifle cartridge I'm not sure, but it may be a smart cartridge with proximity sensor, and thats as far as I can go.. The pistol round with the blue ball is a Glaser Safety slug. On impact the shot spreads. So if it hits a hard surface, not a human, the individual pellets don't contain much kinetic energy, so they don't overpenetrate and go through walls (or too many layers of dry wall) and injure unintended targets. Now it they hit flesh, the jacket opens up, and the pellets do some serious damage.

Looks like a high-explosive round. If you make a JPG capture of the projectile section and enlarge it, you can see the components. It's been a long time since I terrorized APL, but best as I can remember,
here's a breakdown...
