    You can hear the round hit steel. Probably beat up steel that is not flat any more.

    It's evolutionary. It's called thinning out the species.
    But seriously;
    That's one lucky dude! Good thing it bounced off of the ground in front of him instead of landing on his head directly.
    WOW :eek:

    I think it's pretty amazing the bullet came back along the same path. What range was he shooting at? Double that, throw in a deformed bullet and a ground hit and it still hit a human head. A very accurate rifle.

    I think that may have been the jacketing flying back at him. Lucky SOB!

    my guess is he was shooting at one of the old cast-iron bathtubs, you can get them pretty cheap at junk yards, but they are curved and a VERY bad thing to shoot at.

    This video has been a round for awhile. I guess that's what you get for shooting 100 yard targets with a .50 BMG.
