131. I have also seen the effects of bullets
I have seen a watermelon and a full milk carton fired with 5.56mm round. In both cases, the entrance wound was small and the exit wound was immense. Very little blowback was witnessed. The energy is being directed in the direction of the traveling round is headed, not where it came from. Which explains the blood and gore BEHIND the limo, not in front. The blowback is minimal, just like your picture has shown.

And I agree with your last sentence. The energy a bullet going 2000pfs hits like a ton of bricks. Which is why JFK's head and body did what it did during the kill shot. He was hit in the right front, which took his body back and to the left.
