Caption: Forensic ballistics test. Crime scene bullet cartridge being examined under a microscope. The cartridge held a bullet, but was ejected from a gun as the bullet was fired. Unique markings are made as the firing pin of a gun hits the cartridge and as the cartridge recoils from the bullet. The markings can be analysed and compared to markings on cartridges test-fired from guns suspected of being used in crimes. If they match, then that gun was used at the crime scene where the cartridge was found.
