Penetration tests are always fun to watch. As you can see in this demo, “Six gallons is definitely not enough to stop the 500 Magnum.”

The first jug was absolutely obliterated. The next few were unrecognizable. But the last few held their ground pretty well.

The slug of that 500 Magnum passed through all six water jugs, proving them no match for such a hand cannon.

If you are going to shoot the 500 Magnum, here’s one piece of advice: Remember your earplugs!
