Somewhat incorrect, there pardner...

Big-game hunting rounds are nearly all, if not all, expanding rounds; that is, the projectile breaks apart or mushrooms open to create a larger wound path that will do more damage to vital organs. The purpose of this is to have a better chance at a quick death from massive blood loss instead of a slow death. It is considered a more humane way to kill large game.

Militaries are not allowed to use expanding ammunition mainly because it is more likely to cause a quick death.

Yeah because a movie where everybody dies with absolutely no drama is going to be very entertaining. Perhaps you should stick to the Hallmark channel; at least there you won't have any actual real-world experience or knowledge by which to judge the "realness" and you can then be entertained.

Time to take stock. Go home with some office supplies.
