Wadcutter ammunition carries a specialty flat-front bullet intended for shooting paper targets at relatively close ranges. Wadcutters tend to leave the barrel at subsonic velocities. Wadcutters are generally used for competition and short-range target shooting, especially at indoor ranges. Because of their flat front, wadcutters feed poorly through standard semi-automatic pistols and are generally used in revolvers or specially-designed semi-auto firearms. Wadcutter ammunition has also occasionally found favor as a close-range self-defense round for short-barreled pistols.
