If your building a cinder block wall, a little rebar and cement makes all the difference.

Yup! Havn't seen a load bearing CMU wall done otherwise.

Great vid! It really shows the destructive power of the .308 round. I guess this means you shouldn't use a cement block wall for cover!

those are just cinder blocks stacked together loosely. when they are part of a functional wall held together by lots of weight and mortar they behave much differently.

Haha love watching this guys vids, does some pretty decent reviews and yet keeps it interesting. My favorite is when he shoots 2 liters of pop and giggles everytime no matter how many times he has done it
