So, the Xing of the head of the bullets is supposed to... Make it break apart on impact? I've seen it done in vampire movies, but the X is intended to be a cross.

Is this safe/practical in real-world applications, out of curiousity?

I'm having trouble finding screenshots. Here's a link to the movie on YouTube in HD. The rest of the movie comes after it.

They expand and stay in the body, so all the kinetic energy favored for stopping power is maintained.

I wouldn't reccomend cutting Xs in your ammunition, as it could lodge in the barrel if you cut it too much, and never use them in anything other than a revolver. You'll just get lots of jams.

Here's a shot from youtube, it's low res though, because I wasn't going to fuck around with HD for an hour to grab one shot:

That's an Italian Bodeo 1889. One of the non-standard models with the conventional trigger but full length octagonal barrels.
