Ever wonder how many fire extinguishers a .500 S&W bullet will penetrate?
This guy decided to do an (admittedly unscientific) test to see just how many fire extinguishers a 350gr .500 S&W bullet will penetrate.
Watch the video to see how the experiment turned out.
Even though the .500 S&W is a very powerful handgun cartridge, shooting through a row of multiple fire extinguishers is a pretty difficult feat. The metal case of a fire extinguisher, combined with their round shape, tends to make bullets deflect from their trajectory and/or tumble more rapidly than other materials.
For this reason, it should not be surprising that the mighty .500 S&W could only penetrate a couple of fire extinguishers.
