Reflections on Deflections
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
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.
To tumble or not to tumble was never part of the tumble theory critique. Critics based their objections on the
In 1964, a riddle circulated within the technical community. They asked, "What happens to a fast moving bullet?" Their
punch line was, "Very, very little!"
