I was just watching "Taxi Driver" and I have a bullet question> Why does Travis cut an "x" onto each bullet? I heard that it is supposed to make the bullet less stable during impact and cause more damage. Is that true?

i think its similar to hollow point, where the bullet will expand more then normal, causing greater damage.

they're not as stable over distances, but they "mushroom" a lot better when they hit something soft like a person.
