Does explosive tipped crossbow bolts sound like a Hollywood story?
Well Demolition Ranch has some homemade explosive arrows to test out.
Watch and see if these exploding arrows actually go off with a bang.
Demolition Ranch wanted to try his hand at making explosive arrows. His first arrow experiment was a live 9mm cartridge housed in a .40 S&W casing mounted onto a field tip. The arrow does go boom, but the pressure launches the arrow straight back and not into the cinder block target.
His next experiment is a .44 magnum casing loaded up with binary explosive. When fired into the cinder block the explosion puts on quite a show. The arrow is massively damaged but the cinder block appears not to have received much damage at all.
Well this Demolition Ranch experiment was quite interesting but please do not try this at home. Arrows are just too expensive.
