This film comments on the US military practice of testing Remington .12 caliber bullets in Vietnam. In an interview, a German commando leader in the US Marines explains that such guns are common and effective weaponry. Laboratory analysis and shooting tests conducted by the filmmakers reveal that the bullets often explode into small fragments on impact, causing a person's organs to be torn apart from the inside.
Part of the first Vietnam documentary series by Walter Heynowski and Gerhard Scheumann.
