What the… ! Bullets That Kill Around Corners and Change Direction in Flight

Mankind is forever developing more ways to kill.

What about this then? Say you are in a battle and the other side is firing from behind a wall, and you can’t get a shot off before they are protected by the wall.

Well, the Department of Defense is testing bullets that explode like a mini grenade just after they fly over the top of the wall, or past the end of it, or through a turret.

Called the XM-25, it should complete testing in 2016, after which the Army is expected to buy thousands of them.

They have another called “EXACTO” that can change direction in flight.

It’s specifically designed for snipers, for whom even the slightest improvements can be a life-or-death difference.

DARPA’s Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance, or EXACTO, is a .50 caliber round; the details of how it works are completely secret.
