its proven that hard metals make crappy bullets for instance silver bullets make it more difficult to get an accurate shot than much softer lead, a bullet made out of adamantium would b heavier, slower, and alot less accurate than a regular bullet, youd have to be bullseye to get anywhere near where you were aiming

i cant disagree

@joshmightbe:
Silver is not that hard.  Adamanitium would probably be heavy, but you just balance that with the load you use.  It wouldn't make any difference to accuracy in most gun fights.  Unless you're sniping from a mile away (in which case there will be a big difference, though not one that can't be compensated for) it isn't even going to be an issue.

It's also a waste of resources.  Adamantium is meant to be a rare metal that's difficult to extract.  To form it into bullets which are instantly wasted the moment you fire them seems like a complete waste. 
 
I never understood how Adamantium bullets were meant to penetrate an Adamantium skull :p

the velocity would be brutal though, imagine a 44 magnum with a bullet like that in a dead aim... SPLAT

Lol...thats what I was thinking too...  Then i just chalked it up to being like a very hard, exactly aimed punch...with one really hard knuckle...

Likewise. At every turn it's pointed out again and again that adamantium can't cut adamantium. That being said, I don't see how a gun would give it the velocity needed to work. I guess it also matters what shape the bullet is, but it just seemed kind of lame to me.

I would like to bring up a point.
 
You guys don't know the mechanical and material properties of adamantium. So you guys don't know if it would make a good bullet or not.
 
just because it's strong doesn't mean it has to be hard. There are plenty of soft materials that are strong in different ways. Nylon can be pulled and has a very high tensile strength.
 
You can engineer metals to be very strong and soft.

The only way to penetrate an adamantium skull is with an anti-metal vibranium bullet. They shoulda put that in the Wolverine movie....well really it shoulda been some device or other mutant that wipes his memory but whatever.

i could see how it could be used as a short range bullet aside from what i stated above adamantium bullets wouldnt be very cost effective what would it be like a million dollars a clip
#15 Posted by captaincold1 (98 posts) - - Show Bio

Short range, effective, Long range, too heavy.

#16 Posted by Korg (11931 posts) - - Show Bio

So everyone is just going to ignore the fact that there are plenty of weapons/tech in the Marvel U that make adamantium bullets completely feasible? It's not like they are being fired out of a police-issue Glock. They are being fired out of guns that don't even exist. Also, the entire point of using an adamantium bullet is that it is most likely the only thing capable of piercing/damaging your intended target.

Any professional who is using adamantium bullets is probably going to recollect them after they kill the target. 
#17 Posted by HeavyDuty32 (5 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, the bullets wouldn't be wasted, since they wouldn't deform on impact like regular bullets, though it would be annoying to have to police your shell casings as well as your bullets, lol.

There are also a wide range of delivery methods to bullets.  For example, adamantium could be jacketed in a softer metal to improve rifling and ejection.

#20 Posted by lennyoks (38 posts) - - Show Bio

just a thot, if the weight is an issue it could be made hollow, or hollow and filled with something of suitable density  if air/vacuum doesn't make the cut. point is just coz you can't think of how it can be done, dun mean it can't be done.

You guys need to read a little on the subject of bullet making and reloading. That's all I'm going to say.

tungsten    arbide makes very effective armor peircing rounds and it's the hardest metal we know of so adamantium would be more effective but not as effective as any thing made out of adamantium in the comics because they would still need many tons of pressure behind them to go through someone like the hulks skin

#27 Edited by Thor's hammmer (7184 posts) - - Show Bio
@gunjin: 
 
no when you add carbon to tungsten it acctually increases it's hardness like carbon steel making it the hardest metal on earth. it use toungsten carbide jackets on some of the most effective armor peircing bullets and on drill teath meant for burrowing into mountains

most bullets aren't just made from lead. the copper jacket is there for a reason. namely to prevent the bullet from deforming during firing and to increase accuracy. the lead is there for stability and more punch because it is denser, but softer. it also helps the bullet warp on impact, increasing damage. and is adamntium really that heavy? wolverines entire skeleton is covered in it and it only adds 100 pounds to him. plus adamantium is fully synthetic , requiring no vibranium, so although it is expensive it isn't limited like vibranium is.adamantium bullets would pierce adamantium like copper bullets would pierce copper, inertia and velocity. although you would need a very powerful load to get the bullet fast enough to penetrate.

yeah an imense force because someone like Thor (has lifted multi trillion ton objects) striking with Mjolneir (harder than adamantium) only dented true adamantium. adamantium bullets still be useless against other objects made of adamantium like wolverines skeloton if they were fired from a regular gun

King Thor also Dented captain americas sheild with the hammer  
 
however Thor was amped then he's not nearly strong enough to do that normally but the hammer is durable enough

It's hardly patronizing. There's a myriad of sources online where information about bullet making or reloading could be found. That's not even to mention the fact that since nobody knows what adamantium actually is, really discussing any of this in the context of reality is completely moot.

An adamantium bullet actuly could be highly evvective given its velocity output. Figure if a mor hightech wepon such as one Cable or Forge uses for xample could probly project such a round at speeds were it could do emense damage admantium also probly wont suffer the same kinetic force a comon bullet dose. This means its shape would probly be intact n a bullet would be reusable provided your willing to dig it out of the corpse or wall

I guess vibranium would make a better bullet with standerd guns caus it is pretty light right?
