    Which type of bullet is recommended for rifles with tubular magazines?

    • A.

      Pointed soft tip

    • B.

      Rounded soft point

    • C.

      Protected tip

    • D.

      Full metal jacket

    Correct Answer
    B. Rounded soft point
    Explanation
    Rifles with tubular magazines are prone to accidental detonation of the bullets due to the recoil impact, which can cause a chain reaction. Therefore, using pointed soft tip bullets is not recommended as they have a higher risk of detonation. On the other hand, rounded soft point bullets have a lower risk of detonation and are designed to expand upon impact, making them safer and more suitable for rifles with tubular magazines. Protected tip and full metal jacket bullets do not have the same level of safety as rounded soft point bullets in this specific scenario.

    Modern ammunition varies depending on the type of firearm. Rifles and handguns use a __________ containing a single projectile (bullet).

    • A.

      Shell

    • B.

      Shotshell

    • C.

      Cartridge

    • D.

      Round

    Correct Answer
    C. Cartridge
    Explanation
    Modern ammunition for rifles and handguns typically consists of a cartridge. A cartridge is a complete unit that contains a single projectile, also known as a bullet. It includes the bullet itself, a casing or shell that holds the bullet, gunpowder or propellant, and a primer. When the firearm is fired, the primer ignites the gunpowder, which creates a high-pressure gas that propels the bullet out of the casing and towards the target. Therefore, the term "cartridge" accurately describes the component used in rifles and handguns for firing a single projectile.
