The Bullet Chain Reaction Test: The Verdict is In

We asked if you could spot the error before it happens in a recent TAOFLEDERMAUS test. Did you get it right?

So what exactly happens when you try to start a bullet chain reaction using 10 rifle rounds? Well, our special video contributor TAOFLEDERMAUS wanted to find out.

However, he asked us to see if we could spot the error before it happens in his video, posted on Friday. Did you get it right? Watch below.

So the idea here is pretty solid. The rounds will drive themselves forward into the next one, one by one, until all have exited the tube.

And it works! Kind of. Nay-sayers thought that only the first bullet would fire, or that the tube would need to be steel to handle this. While many approached it from a physics point of view, they were still wrong.

A little piece of the primer came straight back into the barrel, but otherwise, it worked!
