Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 9,1913.
To all wko/m, t may concern.'
Be it .known that I, HENRY W. STARK- WEATHER, a citizen of the United States, residing at New Haven, in thevcounty of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented a new and useful Improvement in MuslirooniBullets; and I do hereby declare the following, when taken inI connection with the accompanying drawings 'and the characters of reference marked thereon, to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, and which said drawings constitute part of this application,and represent, in Figure l, a View in side elevation of a mushroom bullet constructed in accordance with my invention, with a band-like jacket swaged thereupon. Fig. 2, a view thereof in central longitudinal section.
My invention relates to animprovement in jacketed mushroom bullets characterized by a band-like jacket exposing the soft metal of the body or core `beyond its opposite edges, the object being to produce at a low cost for manufacture, a bullet of superior mushrooming effect.
IVith these ends in view my invention consists in a mushroom 4bullet having certain details of construction as will be hereinafter described and pointed out in the claim.
In carrying out my invention as herein shown, I apply a relatively hard sheetmetal band-like jacket, 2, to a soft metal body, 3, upon which the band is swaged so as to be embedded in the surface thereof, the inner end of the band being bent inward to form an annular anchoring flange or crimp, 4, which is embedded in v*the body,
3, and holds the band firmly thereupon. The nose, 5, of the soft-metal body is eX- posed beyond the outer edge of the bandlike jacket, 2, and is therefore free to mushroom upon impact.
To prevent any portion of the band, 2, from engaging with the rifling of the arm in which the bullet is used, the band is made in its largest part a trifle smaller in diameter than the exposed rear end, 6, of the body which is cylindrical in form and provided with a shallow annular groove, 7, for the reception of a lubricant.
I claim:
As a new article of manufacture, a mushroom bullet having a soft-metal body made cylindrical at its rear end to take into the rifling of a gun-barrel and tapering forward from its cylindrical portion to form a rounded nose, and a band-like jacket swaged upon the said soft-metal body and narrower in width than the length thereof to expose the cylindrical rear end thereof and the rounded nose thereof, and the inner edge of the said band being turned inward to form a retaining-Harige or crimp which is embedded in the metal of the body at a point in front of the cylindrical portion thereof and where the body begins to taper forward.
In testimony whereof, I have signed this specilication in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
HENRY W. STARKVEATHER.

THOMAS C. JOHNSON, FRANK A. PAUL.
