This video is making its way around work. Couple of guys swear its Marine snipers picking off Taliban in the mountains. I say its rock chucks in the USA.

here, show them the video clips on this URL and then smack them around like the stupid little gullible bitches that they are.

Those weren't shots with a 50BMG. 50BMG is too slow and the bullets are too heavily constructed to do that.

Those effects come from very high velocity frangible bullets impacting with soft gooey flesh. Want to make a squirrel explode? Use a 223Remington with something like a 40grn Vmax or 50grn TNT bullet at 3300fps and aim for the "crap factory" where the bullet can cause that half digested grass to splatter all over the hill side.


I have personally sent a Ca. ground squirrel over 6 feet in the air and it landed over 12 feet away from the original point of bullet impact while using a 223Remington with one of the bullets I mentioned. They usually leave a 1-2 foot ring of red muck on the ground when they splatter.

Its rockchucks, no 750 grain bullet will cause a 150 pound man to fly 10 feet in the air.

It won't even send a 25 pound coyote in the air. Bullet won't transfer energy like that.


Those rockchucks are "exploding" because the temporary cavity being created by the expanding bullet is so large that it bursts the confines of the varmint.

When a varmint is only 4-5 inches thick but the bullet is creating a 7-8 inch temporary stretch cavity, the end result is it pops like a balloon.
