Can the Shockwave from a .50 BMG Bullet Kill You?

There’s a rumor going around that the shockwave from a .50 BMG bullet can kill you.

The folks from Demolition Ranch decided to test the rumor for themselves. Watch the video to see just how powerful the shockwave from a .50 BMG bullet is and how much damage it will do.

Well, there you have it. While the .50 BMG is a massive and powerful round, you still have to hit what you are aiming at in order for the bullet to do its work. As mentioned in the video, bullets are designed to create the smallest shockwaves possible so accuracy, not shear power, should be your number one goal.
