This is crazy! Who would have thought that this would not completely blow up the gun.

Lol. Makes sense that it doesnt go kaboom though. If you think about it, the majority of the gasses are bypassing the bullet and not building much pressure. The bullet isnt sealing the bore like on a normal 50cal so there is a lot of gas leak keeping the pressure very low.
