Could a bullet be developed that loses most if not all velocity after about 100...

American education everyone. You just need to desing a bullet that has very high air friction.
The problem is it might also get stuck in fleshy targets which is a big no no. It would also probally be expensive to make.

We already have this technology. It is mostly used for explosive rounds. It keeps them from blowing up too close to you and/or blows up the instant it senses that its entered through the opening of a window or door. You can simply set it to whatever distance you want. There's a couple different rifle systems that use this, some are not finished while others are discontinued for some reason even though they worked.

I'm curious. What rifle systems are those?

You could probably design the materials, shape, weight, etc. to drop off at a certain distance rather quickly (compared to most other bullets) but without some mechanism that alters the bullet it wouldn't be instant...even then, aside from actually directing the bullet downwards or reducing its velocity by some means or something, there aren't many ways to stop it. If you have something that 'shatters' it when triggered (by distance) the pieces would still travel quite a ways. It's hard to just stop all of it with no distance threshold. I guess you could go to great lengths with a specialised cartridge/bullet and all, but it would be far from a simple conventional bullet. It would be inferior, costly, error-prone, and fragile.

Yeah, penetration of air and penetration of people has a lot in common.

Reverse Gyro-jet, maybe? Fires like a regular gun, the rockets, facing forward, kick in after 100 feet to decelerate?

Would hate to get hit with one of those, though...

Yes. Light materials. Aluminium bullets are used for these purposes.

We could do it, but it'd be pretty expensive compared to a regular bullet.

With a sufficiently heavy bullet launched at a sufficiently slow speed, yeah
