Blank cartridges with no bullets are harmless… right?

Not so fast! Those blank cartridges still pack a punch up close. Take a look at how dangerous blank cartridges actually are.

Derren Brown shared a video on Youtube that any shooter or reenactor has to see.

Blank cartridges are often used in movies and war reenactments. The bang goes off without a bullet, but not without a punch. In this video, a revolver is loaded with a blank cartridge and placed against a plastic water bottle. The bottle sustains heavy damage from this blank cartridge, proving just how powerful and dangerous they can be.

If you’re using blank cartridges, be aware that at close range, they, too. can inflict a fatal if not just plain nasty injury.
