Mean diameter for the permanent cavity (A), the temporary cavity (B) and depth of infiltration of barium titanate particles along the bullet path (C) after firing with a .22 Magnum full metal jacketed projectile either in forensic gelatin blocks (black bar) or porcine hind limbs (grey bar). Comparison obtained for the gelatin blocks and porcine hind limbs revealed significant differences (p < 0.05) between the two groups of specimens in all three parameters investigated.
