drilling effect

drilling effect

The linear, “one-dimensional” laceration that occurs with any penetrating object, especially a projectile/bullet from a firearm. Drilling effect is the primary mechanism of injury in low-velocity gunshot wounds, as the kinetic energy is insufficient to create the temporary cavity that is seen in high-velocity projectiles.
