    REMEMBER,,, WITH METAL TARGETS, SET THEM AT AN ANGLE.



    This guy is shooting a 50 CAL. Watch the dust when he fires. The target, is a steel plate, 1000 yards away. You can hear the ping of the hit, and then the bullet comes back and hits the ground just in front of his position,then tumbles up hitting the earmuffs, knocking them off of his head. Thefootage is amazing.You can hear the bullet as it tumbles through the air on its course back toward the shooter. He's lucky it hit the dirt first. He is okay, and obviously very lucky. The bullet grazed his temple. What a difference a half an inch makes!

    I see this before also and still wander how he got a ricochet from a >50 cal hitting a small steel target 100 yards down range...one would think that the bullet would of punched through the target and hit the burm.
