I want a way to properly answer self evaluation in a way that exceeds the comments section so here it is.

In terms of the general audience, it would seem someone would choose to say bullet or bullets over ammunition (even if used incorrectly)

Google Trends for ammunition, bullet, bullets

From there, I choose to remove the Why portion as one would be looking for a definition. How can I phrase this, for me, I would rather search for

Apple computers

versus

Where can I buy apple computers

Maybe this isn't how most users search and I think it should be something to be considered but for the moment I am going to assume I am the norm.

Leaving the verb cutting and letting Google do auto-complete for popular searches starting with this we get the following

Google search

So we have two search terms to look for

  • cutting x in lead bullets
  • cutting x in bullets

We are going to assume these searches are ordered by popularity and choose

cutting x in lead bullets

I will use the answer to block to place my self-evaluation based on this query.

  • Note I have given examples for others as well even though my conclusion is that the above query is the most likely one to be used. – phwd May 3 '12 at 17:52
  • Doh, I should've used bullets in the text. ;) – magnattic May 3 '12 at 18:08
