This ammunition is pitted with a pattern of small pocks into which specially formulated poison compounds can be applied. A poison compound is a derivative of a standard toxin that is alchemically reduced to a solid form. These can be made from any standard injury or contact poison with a Craft (poison) check equal to the poisons DC + 4. The cost of purchasing an already prepared poison compound for the purpose of treating pitted bullets is equal to the poisons base cost + 20 gp.
Once crafted, the compound
can be pasted into the ammunitions pitted design and allowed to harden.
Upon completion, the bullet can be fired from an appropriate firearm, releasing
the poison compound into its target upon impact, but the poisons DC is
reduced by 2. A pitted bullet cannot be used with an alchemical cartridge.
