    Japanese were forced to use wood bullets in WWII because lead was no longer available.

    I find the effects of material scarcity to be an interesting facet of ww2. A few years ago when I visited Germany you could tell when a building was build during ww2 by the construction of the bricks. Towards the end of the war you saw bricks that looked more like honeycomb to save materials. Saw this at buchenwald. Definitely a place I will remember visiting the rest of my life.

    I wonder how effective wooden bullets were?

    I'd say pretty deadly up close and personal.

    But the effective killing range couldn't be very far (Mr. Physics wouldn't allow it), not to mention that accuracy would be abysmal beyond a few yards.
