The Comp Bullet is exactly what gunmen around the world have been waiting for. This simple redesign of the classic rifle bullet creates a smoother shooting experience thanks to the addition of small punctures along the base of it.

Created by an Italian firearms maker of the same name, the Comp Bullet essentially reduces the recoil by distributing the gas that results naturally when the shooter pulls the trigger symmetrically behind it. This helps the bullet maintain velocity while ensuring less discomfort for the holder of the gun.

Although a basic tweak, the Comp Bullet could inspire other changes in the gun game. By increasing velocity and decreasing recoil, the Comp Bullet shows that an object that has been around for decades can be improved upon.
