US MIlitary works on burning bullets.

SWEET! I found this article on hwo the US military is creating bullets that, on impact, create instant heat at temperatures so hight that they burn through armor plating.
"A bunker-busting shell that gets so hot on impact that it burns its way through concrete and steel is being developed by the US Navy's Warfare Center in Virginia."
"Its high-velocity impact acts as a catalyst, forcing the two chemicals together in a red hot reaction. The projectile gets so hot so fast that it should instantly burn its way through armour plating or other defences."
