How Much Paper Does It Take To Stop A 50 Cal Machine Gun?

How many reams does it take to stop that ridiculously giant and powerful bullet? About 7! Which is like, 3500 sheets of paper.

What It Looks Like When A Ballistic Gel Body Dummy Gets Shot Up With Bullets

Video: Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle. That’s what it looks like from afar when a fully automatic glock starts shooting its bullets at the ballistic gel dummy. And it’s almost funny how the gel moves! But then you look a little closer and see the true damage of the gun and it’s a whole lot scarier. The bullets spread open upon impact with the gel for maximum damage and then basically torpedoes itself into such spiraling damage that it’s so very frightening.

Awesome Slow Motion Footage Of Bullets Piercing Random Objects

Video: Ever wanted to see a bullet shoot through a banana? A hamburger? An apple? A lightbulb? A jug of water? Milk? Ham? A single playing card? You got your wish then. Vickers Tactical shot bullets at totally random objects in slow motions and the results are pretty damn incredible.

How Does Homemade Body Armour Made From T-shirts, Paper, And Duct Tape Hold Up To Bullets?

Video: This test of homemade body armour by Demolition Ranch reads like the old fable of the Three Little Pigs. This little piggy made body armour out of T-Shirts. This little piggy used duct tape. And this one used a stack of printer paper. Which homemade body armour can withstand the big bad wolf bullet? Well, they each sort of do to varying degrees.

How Many Shots From An Assault Rifle Can A Ceramic Body Armour Plate Take Before Breaking?

Can body armour stand up to an assault rifle? Can a ceramic plate not shatter against the bullets of an AR-15 and AK-47 hybrid weapon? Demolition Ranch investigated by shooting the crap out of the body armour to see how long it takes for a bullet to pierce and penetrate through.

How Many Gun Shots And What Calibre Of Bullet Does It Take To Actually Bust Open A Lock?

We see it in movies all the time — somebody needs to get passed a locked door. Shoot up that padlock with your gun and boom, you’re clear on the other side. But does that actually work in real life? Demolition Ranch attempted to find out, with different guns and different calibre bullets and a whole lot of shooting to find out.

Seeing A Gun Fire At 73,000 FPS Is Absolutely Definitely The Most Incredible Thing

Wow. Ten thousand wows couldn’t even begin to explain how much amazement and pure jaw dropping wonder that I’m feeling after seeing a gun fire off a shot at 73,000 frames per second. We’ve seen bullets and other guns get shot in slow motion before but not anything like this, the visible force and pressure and explosion and dance of fire and ghost of a bullet trail and mini mushroom cloud that we get to see is just simply incredible. The detail, man.

Is The Indestructible Hockey Puck Bullet Proof?

Adamantium aside, the hockey puck is the strongest material on Earth. That’s only a little bit of an exaggeration since we’ve seen it survive liquid nitrogen, take on the vaunted red hot nickel ball and even put up a respectable fight against thermite.

This Anti-Bullet Wall Can Stop Bullets From Penetrating And Ricocheting

Somehow a wall filled with these hard ceramic balls is bulletproof. It stops bullets from penetrating through the wall and even prevents bullets from ricocheting off the wall too. It’s basically the best shield against a gun we have.

The Simple Maths Of Why Smaller Bullets Are Deadlier

The long range rifle has been around since the 19th century, a short 100 years after Daniel Bernoulli published his book, Hydrodynamica, on the relationship between pressure and potential energy (or speed) of a fluid. The gist of his principle relates an increase in speed of a fluid to a decrease in pressure. Using this with the venturi effect that states the velocity of a fluid increases as the cross sectional area decreases provides the key to projectile ballistics.
