Russian scientists fired from the electromagnetic gun plastic bullet.

Tests of electromagnetic accelerator – railgun – took place in Shatura branch, Joint Institute for High Temperatures RAS. During the tests, scientists fired a 15-gram plastic bullet on an aluminum disc. As a result the dent appeared on target.

According to the researcher of joint Institute for high temperatures RAS Michael shurupova, the bullet hit the target at a speed of about 3 kilometers per second.

The railguns are devices capable of accelerating objects to extremely high speeds by the force of electricity and magnetic fields. As a rule, a set of several parallel conductors through which current is passed ultra high strength. If the rail touches the conductor, the Lorentz force will push out and up to ultrahigh velocities, unavailable for gunpowder weapons.
