They are not "so accurate". Standard pointed rounds are more accurate. Hollowpoints are used because they flatten on impact and this cause a lot of damage to the victim, but tend not to penetrate walls, etc., thus fewer injuries to bystanders.

Edit: What the person wrote above me is incorect. Although hollow points in bullets can be utilized so that "mushrooming" (A bullet expanding in its terminal state) it can also be used for accuracy. A HPBT (Hollow point boat tail) Is a type of bullet. This is known as a spitzer type bullet. It is used in rifles because it changes the location of the center of gravity helping the bullet stay stable in the flight pattern.

Backing up my facts:The Geneva Convention BANNED Hollow points from being used because they deemed them inhumane. It stated hollowpoints are made so they expand and cause unessesary suffering. Rifle bullets (HPBT spitzer type) use to counter attack terrorist snipers are the exception to the rule because the hollow point isn't designed to aid in mushrooming, in fact it doesnt even HELP mushrooming that much. The bullets are hollow point to aid in accuracy as noted earlier :D

EDIT: Hollow points are NOT banned by the Geneva Conventions. They are banned from warfare by the Hague Convention. The Geneva Conventions do not discuss hollow points.

Yes, hollow point bullets can be more accurate than non-hollow points, primarily in rifles, because the hollow moves the center of gravity slightly to the rear. Such bullets are often called Open Tip Match (OTM) to differentiate them.

To the nearest whole number is to the nearest unit which is the digit before the decimal point. The digit to its right (the one after the decimal point) is used to decide whether to round up or down: if it is 0-4 it rounds down, otherwise it is 5-9 and rounds up: With 654.874 the digit to the right of the units digit is 8, so it rounds up: 654.874 → 655

Numbers 0 to 4 round down; 5 to 9 round up. 54 rounds to 50. 55 rounds to 60. So 50 rounds to 100.

1.0

Well... 2.84 rounds to 3, and 3.21 rounds to 3. So 3 plus 3 is 6. The estimated sum is 6. The actual answer is 6.05 so that is right.

The 3 rounds down, so the result is:0.61

No you can not. Rifle rounds are longer than pistol rounds, which is part of the reason they are so accurate.

New quests are added often, so you can't really ever get an accurate answer for this.

As there is a 0 after the decimal point, the number rounds down, so 226 is the answer.

There is a bullet design/type for any application of firearms you can think of. Just as tools were developed for specific purposes, so did bullet design evolve over the years. Here's a few.... 1. Wadcutter 2. Sem-wadcutter 3. Round nose 4. Jacketed round nose 5. Flat point 6. Semi-jacketed flat point 7. Jacketed flat point 8. Hollow point 9. Jacketed hollow point 10. Semi-jacketed hollow point 11. Spire point 12. Frangible 13. Boat-tail The list goes on, I just popped in 13 off the top of my head, there are others out there, specialty rounds such as the Hydro-shok. Without a more specific question, that's the best I can do for you. <><><> Good listing. There are also tracer, armor piercing, incendiary, and plastic training bullets.

It depends on a lot of things. The longer the barrel is the more powerful and accurate the round is going to be. Secondly, the construction of the bullet counts as well. If you are shooting with a hollow-point, that probably isn't as good as a solid round because the hollow-point will break up instead of penetrate. A hollow-point is more likely to break up before reaching vital areas of anatomy that can stop a bear. So the bottom line is can you stop a bear with a 357 magnum? With a hollow-point light 110grain 357 cartridge and an 2 inch barrel I would not count on it. If you have a solid point 357 180 grain cartridge and an 8 inch barrel you would be a lot more likely to stop a bear. If you really want to stop a bear you are better off with a shot gun loaded with slugs or a rifle rather than a 357 magnum. Killing a bear with a 357 magnum is a real crap-shoot, especially with shorter barrels and less powerful hollow-point cartridges. That's my best answer.

So that the result that you find on the watt meter after resetting it will be accurate

Renji? No, he isn't part hollow so he can't get a hollow mask.

It stays at the maximum point so you get an accurate reading
