Bullet Acronyms and Abbreviations
This is a list of acronyms and abbreviations used to describe bullet shapes and/or
construction. The following are very common abbreviation you will see associated with
+P - Contains a higher powder charge than normal (10-15% overpressure).
+P+ - Contains a much higher powder charge than normal (20-25% overpressure).
J - usually Jacketed.
P - usually Point.
S - could be Soft, Semi, Spire or Spitzer.
The list below is not a complete list, but you will get the idea. For example, you can use
this information to put together or figure out the abbreviations or acronyms for a
particular bullet shape such as SWCHP (Semi-Wad Cutter Hollow Point) or JHPBTS
(Jacketed Hollow Point Boat-Tailed Spitzer.)

Bullet and cartridge companies have also introduced some creative new names for
bullets in an effort to distinguish their products from those of other companies. These
are generally used to describe a particular product, rather than the general bullet
construction. For example, Remington's Golden Sabre bullets would rightly be
described as JHP(Jacketed Hollow Point), however, they have chosen to label them
HPJ(High Performance Jacketed) instead. A listing of the new acronyms and
abbreviation is listed below.

My antwoord was nie om neerhalend te wees nie. Net gesien dat jy dit van 'n Amerikaanse bron moes oorgeneem het. Dankie vir die plasing. Dit sal hopelik die "punte" probleem oplos.
