Because I know you wanted to know. The bullet is formed integral to the cartridge case as is blown free upon firing.

Looks like a reduced velocity and impact practice round designed for Indoor Ranges.  How close did I get? 
 
 Um, spot on.  Too bad it wasn't a whatziss...
 
 Actually, I was wondering about that... 
 
What kind of a charge does it hold? Or is it just a primer?
 
It had powder in it up to the beginning of the shoulder on the case.  Fairly fine-grained powder, though I wasn't really looking at that this morning.
 
 Might could be that the powder is just a filler.
 
Iocane powder?
 
Iocane powder?
Inconceivable!

 
Bloody Sicilians. Pain in the ass... 
 
And while not lethal through several layers of jeans and carhartts they make a bloody impressive bruise. Past forty or so yards though they probably don't even hurt much. One was enough for me.
 
Wow, Og, I was about to ask about that. With good face protection, that might be good training. What struck me as un-realistic about paintball games, is that in them it doesn't much hurt to get shot.
 
  Looks at Og with head cocked like a puppy... "What *were* you thinking? Was there a beer involved?"
 
So much is explained by the words "alcohol was involved>
