How accurate are rubber bullets?
Although the rubber bullets are felt hard to the touch, they are easily bent, flattened and distorted on impact. It must be recalled that there is no expectation of pinpoint accuracy with these bullets. It is expected that 80% of shots fired form a 30 cm circle (or better) at 20 m.
