An analysis of the deflection of a bullet by an obstacle has produced the following results. This analysis, which is discussed later, assumes the obstacle can provide sufficient deflecting force and the bullet deflects without fragmentation.
Scientists at the Edgewood arsenal fired bullets from the MC rifle directly into obstacles simulating the neck of President Kennedy and Governor Connally's chest and wrist. They found that the simulations of Connally's chest and wrist deformed the test bullets to a greater extent than CE 399 and concluded that CE 399 lost speed while transiting an obstacle before striking Connally. In support of this obvious conclusion these experiments provided data to test the yaw explanation of the size of Connally's back wound.
