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

Wooden core on a lead or copper bullet. Would mushroom out nicely when shooting through the Indian sub-continent if you were working in the East Indian Company's private army...

Of course though, the wooden core was sterlilised - unclean wood splinters could give an enemy tetanos after being shot, and we would not want that would we now, old boy? Us British are above that sort of unsportsmanlike behaviour!
