I find the discussion of violence, war and the like as primitive, unevolved and the obvious self-empowerment a one attempts to enjoy by sharing fear-based garbage like that. Sorry sniper talkers but there must be a little too much need in you for hairless-monkey talk like that! Who but a feeble and weak being believes that their life holds any value over another's by general majority? A killing-minded person has a definate disadvantage in personal growth and development, for that is just so animal mentality. This site is for intellectual and personal vision I thought.

The small metal ball used the poison ricin, highly potent and at the time it was used nearly impossible to detect. The KGB made great use of the umbrella trick and probably assassinated more than we would like to admit using this method.

Well, the easiest thing to do would be to just stab someone with a really good icicle, hehe....
No evidence, no prints, and if not found real soon, would put off the time of death about two hours...
Of course any real assassin wirth his salt knows that the best assassinations are ones that look like suicides or accidents.
With a gun, of course, you're usually opting for suicide...so there's another option with ice...
First, you capture the victim and drug them up with some fairly untracable muscle relaxers (they do exist) or sedatives...(if need be, you can even match some trace elements to food served as a "last meal" ). Then, you have a carved pedestal made of dry ice (to hold the gun at a believable angle), as well as a piece of dry ice between the hammer of a revolver... You can go somewhere, have an alibi, and then let the dry ice melt (leaves no water), gun goes off, kills victim in chair (after forcing victim to previously fire gun of course, after the relaxants, and in another location...this will give the proper powder burns, etc. and fingerprints), and rest of ice melts into vapor... Looks like the victim shot himself... Especially well if a note is added, but that could be tricky....

what would be the point in an ice bullet anyway? how wud it be kept cold in the magazine? what use would it be on a battlefield, some bullets can pass thru wood and thin metal where as an ice bullet wud break on impact
sounds useless to me
