Abstract

The X-ray fluorescence spectral qualitative and quantitative analyses were performed for the elemental composition of 4 marks of bullets for pneumatic weapon of home and foreign production, and also for imitators of common clothing materials camouflage fabric and cotton knitwear. It is determined that lead bullets for pneumatic weapons are capable to introduce some elements of their composition, which are inherent in one or another mark of bullets, to the area of damage on certain clothing materials, in particular, camouflage fabric and cotton knitwear. This expands the possibilities of forensic medical examination when dealing with a problem of determining the type and mark of a bullet or of a small group of bullets similar in their elemental composition, due to which the pneumatical shot injuries of examined objects took place.
