I love the bullet wound you guys made, obviously it looks like an entrence wound, but now can we have an exit wound? A wound larger than the entrance wound would be great for a bullet exiting the body. It should look nastier, and more grotesque. We should have one for different bullet types such as 9mm, Shotgun, AK-47, etc. What do you guys think?

I made the first bullet wound plug in and i think it would be extremely hard to make a bullet exit wound realistic becuase usually when the bullet exits alot of blood comes with it. i would try to make it but for some reason i cant get the hang of the plugger

Hey kids,

You clearly have little understanding of bullet wounds.

Not all bullets exit the body. Most of them don't.
And the exit wound from something like a .22 is nothing like
the one from an AK47.

I refer you to the following as good references for bullet wounds


Nice site, technical detail a little old, but it covers entry, exit, bones, etc.

Fantastic article. Very detailed.
