Dude you're really posting a techmarine meme, then posting an image of a bolt, and trying to say bolters fire bullets? Do you know what a stub gun is?


>Bolter Ammunition (a bolt) is primarily a solid .75 calibre slug. Conventional solid slugs utilise a propellant charge contained in a casing that, when ignited, forces the bullet out of the barrel. In contrast, a bolt is self-propelled; it features its own integrated solid propellant that propels the bolt at high speeds, essentially acting like a miniature rocket. The propellant itself is shaped to control the bolt's direction and speed; however, this method of rocket propulsion would normally warp the barrel due to gas pressure. The Bolter uses an ingenious method to prevent this.

>> No.38204270


Bolts is the name for the ammunition used by Bolter weapons, though I'm not sure if an official depiction of them exists.

>> No.38204293

>> No.38204296

>The Boltgun, also commonly referred to as the Bolter, is the standard weapon of the Adeptus Astartes and Adepta Sororitas. A .75 caliber weapon, the Boltgun fires a self-propelled explosive 'bolt' which explodes with devastating effect once it has penetrated its target, effectively blowing it apart from the inside. Finely hand-crafted by Space Marine Forges or the Adeptus Mechanicus, Boltguns are heavy, sturdy weapons with a powerful recoil normal humans would find difficult to handle.

Do you have any canon sources for that? I've never heard them called anything except for bolts. Categorically, they are more similar to a rocket than a bullet.

Are you just pulling that out of your ass? Because I don't think humans in real life call the ammunition they use for grenade launchers "bullets." There is a massive size and effect difference between a bullet and a bolt from the perspective of the average human. I don't think you have a strong grasp on this concept.

This. Bolters, for all intents and purposes, are just normal guns but bigger and more exaggerated.

I think it was a Space wolves hh short story I read that said the reason why space marines favour more primative weapon designs like bolters and solid rounds in general instead of more advanced energy weapons was the shock and awe factor that comes from the brutality of them.

>> No.38212011

Probably depends on the unit's origins too. Would imagine that regiments formed from hive gangers, feral/feudal world warriors, etc. are given MUCH more freedom regarding behaviour and attire compared to, say, Mordian Iron Guard.

Who knows, maybe that particular regiment's regulations even dictate that the gangwear IS the official uniform? (Which would hilariously lead to the Commissars BLAM!ming anyone caught wearing something too formal.)
