MythBusters Answer: Is It Possible to Curve a Bullet?

Is a high-powered robotic arm generate enough power to curve a bullet? 

Hollywood and shooter’s curiosity have created the phenomenon of curving bullets. But is it really possible?

Leave it to the MythBusters to get to the bottom of it.

Watch Kari, Grant, and Tori build a high-powered robot and test the myth.

Well, it appears even a robot with super speed cannot curve a bullet. Newton’s first law appears to still be intact. An object in motion will stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction, unless an unbalanced force interferes.

Save your bullets and shoulders the next time you’re at the gun range folks; it cannot be done.
