Added DiffLines:

* CartridgesInFlight: Early in the novel, a handful of characters try to identify what sort of gun a large, pointed metal slug could have come from by looking for features such as the indentation from a firing pin or a stamp bearing the caliber or manufacturer's name. Made even more glaring by one of the characters mentioning they used to help their father reload ammunition- meaning they'd at least know how a bullet works- and another having been on the ground in the UsefulNotes/VietnamWar.
