bullet perforating

1. n. [Perforating]
An early perforating method that used a hardened steel bullet or projectile, propelled by an explosive charge, to create a perforation tunnel. This method creates a low-permeability crushed zone and leaves the bullet and associated debris jammed at the end of the tunnel. Jet perforating is now the preferred method.
