Re: 50 Cal bullet comes back and hits guy

Would an engineer/physics major with too much free time like to calculate the distance from shooter to target, so we can judge whether the shooter was a dumbo for shooting .50 at close range, or it was just a very freaky coincidence?

Um, perhaps 1 way would be to use the length of time the bullet whine is heard, and get some music software to measure the pitch of that whine, from which velocity can be estimated.

Guy is very lucky. Went to the shooting range and like the sign say ricochet kill. If any of you guys want to see what a 50 Cal will do to a human. I am sure youtube has some videos of insurgents getting direct hits from US Army snipers or vechicle mounted 50cals.

And an eye protector is realistically going to do what to protect you from a .50 cal? Even a .50 cal ricochet?

Can't watch the vid from work (doesn't work), but I gotta say, damn man.

PS a more impressive thing to see is what a 25mm round from a bushmaster does to a person. Not really what I would say is cool, since it is kind of gut wrenching, but it is impressive.
