CHANDELIER OF BULLETS (Mar, 1945)

THIS CHANDELIER OF BULLETS was made at the Ford Willow Run testing field where Liberator bombers, manufactured at the rate of one an hour, try out their .50-cal. machine guns. The giant magnet retrieves the spent bullets from the backstop so that they can be melted down for salvage.

    How can a magnet retrieve non-magnetic lead bullets? More total BS.

    Easily. Steel cased bullets.
    Military does not use pure lead bullets, because those can’t penetrate armor.

    James: or a steel core penetrator but the point is that folks in 1945 had better things to do than to BS you.
