Re: "return to sender" bullet.

The US deployed these in vietnam. Basically, take one cartridge, remove the propellent which is a low explosive designed to propel the bullet and replace it with the highest grade explosive possible. The resulting round weighs the same, and looks the same.

When fired however, it explodes with such force that the weapon is destroyed along with the person using it.
