Three Main Components of Gunshot Wounds:

gunsshot woundCavitation: Shockwave behind bullet. Can be 10 times the diameter of the projectile. Permanent cavitation is the hole left by the bullet. Damage will depend on the elasticity of organ or tissue.

Penetration: Flesh is destroyed or disrupted by the passing projectile.
