How the MAPX Projectile Works
The following illustrations demonstrate how a single Mechanically Adaptable Projectile can be optimized for different performance. The ability to adapt the center of mass for optimal flight or increase the size of the hollow point for more acute hydrostatic pressure.

Material Science And The Mechanically Adaptable Projectile
The Core Projectile Module is made of a high tech material that has significantly reduced skin friction when compared to prevailing projectile materials. We are able to push the projectiles faster without excessive pressure. We have chosen to use high tech materials to reduce drag, the military is trying to do the same through other means http://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/2009/04/us-army-team-tests-radical-new-dimpled-bullet/ The material is also extremely reactive to aqueous (water based) mediums. This enables extremely fast transfer of energy into the target. We can adapt the reactive characteristics of the projectile by adding components with different mechanical properties.
