Okay, so I had a couple of 6lb, 10oz cans of fruit cocktail that had swollen and I thought this would be a fun way to dispose of them. Obviously what happened was that the bullet poked a nice, small 0.224" hole in the front of the can and blew a much larger hole out the back of the can, the pressurized contents then jetted out both holes, but much more mass made it through the larger hole, propelling the can toward me in obedience to Newton. If I had two brain cells to rub together, I might have predicted that result. If you're gonna do something stupid, though, might as well get it on video.
