What Happens When You Shoot an AR-15 Underwater?

Would you ever even think of shooting an AR-15 rifle underwater?

These guys did and the results are quite interesting.

Watch this video and see an AR-15 rifle shot underwater all caught in slow motion.

While it may not be the safest idea, MyGunExchange has shared an extremely interesting slow motion video of an AR-15 rifle shot underwater.

An AR-15 shot on land can send a .223 cartridge at targets with plenty of power. When it is shot underwater, the story is quite different. The bullet was launched only four feet. The denser water is the cause of such a decline in power.

While a gun does shoot and looks pretty cool underwater, do not try this at home. This video makes a great research tool for those interested in the subject.
