Well, just to get through any self-protection force-fields the sorcerers 
might have. Otherwise the bullet doesn't go through the first one.

Funny. I had exactly the same thought.

Only I was thinking of a "Powder Bomb" that would be dropped onto a major 
city (say Adrilankha) in preparation for dropping a nuclear warhead. 
(Again, so no kind of city-wide sorcerous force-field could be used to 
protect the city.)

One bomb dropped on Adrilankha. Orb is destroyed. War is over.
