Having watched one of the "new" bolts from Trimaris, I say that there
are material methods for doing this. The only issue is that there are
dangers besides "bounce back". (sword struck arrows spinning, falling
down on them, etc) If "bounce back" is the only problem it is easy to
solve, if not it makes it more difficult.
