JMO.Thanks for the information HC. I've also linked several studies on the same in the previous thread. Of course, there will be proponents of the science and also naysayers.
I think and hope they might have a partial print or DNA on the bullet itself, which will only further strengthen its relevance.
It still is just one piece of a much larger puzzle that ties RA to BG.
YES! We are seeing only the top of the iceberg at the moment.
There is much more to come.
I’ll be fascinated to see digital forensics on this.
Thank you, @WildHuncher — the visuals are great.In answer to what are now repeated claims that the defense has a resource in the similarity of RA's Sig Sauer P226 to the standard Indiana State Police officer's Sig Sauer P227, I'll risk repeating a point that's overlooked in such posts:
The Wikipedia page for the P226:
The SIG Sauer P226 is a full-sized, service pistol made by SIG Sauer. This model is sold with a choice of four chambers to choose from: the 9×19mm Parabellum, .40 S&W, .357 SIG, or .22 Long Rifle.
RA has the .40 version. The unspent cartridge from the crime scene is also .40.
The P227 introduced a double-stack .45 ACP caliber handgun into the SIG Sauer lineup.
It comes only in .45 ACP. This is what an Indiana cop might accidentally, never mind how, drop on a crime scene.
A forensic tech handed RA's Sig Sauer and a .45 round from a crime scene will not do extended analysis of tiny scratch marks to tell if that round came from that gun. He will inform you that the CS cartridge is too fat to ever chamber in RA's gun.

Suggesting a different caliber size would match RA’s (never-loaned, never-lost) gun isn’t introducing reasonable doubt, it’s engaging in specious fantasizing.
