Correct terminology is important in an educational setting.

From the TFL Library:
Quote:
Bullet - The object which is propelled towards the target. This term is often incorrectly used to describe a loaded round of ammunition (cartridge). The ensuing confusion has led to the use of the superfluous term “bullet heads”. The design of the bullet differs for various applications.
Quote:
Cartridge - Complete unit of ammunition, comprising cartridge case, bullet, powder and primer.
