It is now possible to test fire a bullet, easily retrieve it and have 100 percent identification of the unique markings available, including powder residue. Ballistics Research Inc. has developed a patented process, the Duke Projectile Recovery System (DPRS), that enables any caliber of bullet ranging from small handguns to large military rounds to be recovered for ballistis testing/forensic firarm identification. DPRS can capture hollow-point rounds; shotgun rounds; high-velocity, full-metal jackets; soft points; and Glaser rounds whole and completely undamaged (not just the casing). When a test round is fired, it enters the recovery system where it encounters layers of fibrous material. The bullet is encapsulated in the fiber and resistance is applied without direct contact on the bullet, preserving the entire bullet and powder residue.
