Great post. I saw a show about this on of all places NPR. It was done by a pathologist who used cadavers to test on. The results in the impact had more to do with the shape of the bullet,speed and the make-up of the human skull. JFK's head came apart right along a weak part( where the skull grows together to form a ridge)It was without a doubt the most conclusive explaination that I have ever heard of. Being a Marine and an owner of a 6.5 carcano I have no doubt that LHO could have made those shots!

thanks for your comment, and thanks for the read. it is much appreciated.

now, back to business, i suppose.--

do you have any idea how i might access this program from npr. one, i would be interested to read it. and, two, i think most of the 10's who read me, might be interested as well. laughing.

and, the carcano and the 6.5 cartridge are servicable rifle & cartridge. they are, both of them, mannlicher influenced and derived, with a little german mauser thrown in.

they are just about as lethal a combination as any of the european 6.5 rounds & rifles.

Mr. Jay, that show was back in the mid 80's early 90's and I don't remember the name. About 2000 I tried fo find it for a friend but was unable to. I wish that I had my vcr going that day as this trully was an eureka moment.For the first time action that I saw with my own two eyes made sense. The jerking back of the head points to a frontal hit, pretty hard to do from behind. But after watching this show, I think it was two hours long I had no doubt in my mind that all of the shots were fired from behind. I will try to do another search and see what I can come up with. Not promising anything but will give it a look see for you, OK. thanks for your blog read it about everyday

Mr. Jay, I'm sorry to say that there is no way in hell that I will be able to find that video again, unless by pure luck. Npr archives only go back a few years and they were no help finding it with no title. web search is so much crap to wade through. Sorry to crap out but I gave it a shot.

thanks for the effort & thought, it is much appreciated.
