So what I'm wondering is why—would it be more expensive than lead, or less effective, or less accurate, or what? And what would a bullet made from solid iron, fired from a handgun, do on impact in terms of spinning, mushrooming, or fragmenting?
Also, there's a flashback scene to the Battle of Stalingrad (because this is a crackfic). I can find the sorts of guns that both armies were using fairly easily, but not what their ammunition was like. Any ideas?
This is an urban fantasy, but that's not an excuse for getting everything wrong.
Edit: You guys are the best!
