Penetration tech: BAE Systems' new ammo for Our Boys and Girls

Interestingly the soft lead "ball" round was originally specced so that it would only penetrate "light cover" and NOT overpenetrate and become a danger to civvies (i.e. it stops in the target or whatever is behind the target, like a wall, instead of travelling through the target and several walls coming to rest in some unlucky sod uninvolved with whatever nastyness is taking place).

I guess collateral damage is no longer bad thing.
