For all the pyromaniacs out there, this is proof that shooting a 30lb propane tank with a .50 cal incendiary round makes a crazy big fire.
We’ve shown you what happens when you shoot a propane canister with a compound bow. While the results of that experiment were still pretty cool, this video is much more impressive. Here’s what happens when you shoot a much larger propane tank with a .50 cal incendiary round.
Just as with everything in life, there is always someone (like Uncle Rob) eager to push the safety envelope. Whatever you do, don’t try this at home!
Watch the video to see what happened to that propane tank:
That’s a pretty awesome video, but I’m not sure how much of the fire was due to the incendiary round igniting the propane after striking the tank. While the quality of the video isn’t perfect, it appears that there are a couple of small fires burning near the propane tank before he shoots it with the .50 cal incendiary round. If that’s the case, then those are most likely what started the resulting fire and explosion.
Even so, the results are still pretty impressive!
