What Will a .38 Special Do to a Prince Rupert’s Drop?

A Prince Rupert’s Drop has a reputation of being virtually indestructible; but what will a .38 special round do to it?

If you haven’t seen one before, a Prince Rupert’s Drop is an amazing feat of engineering that can stand up to a ton of pressure. In the past we’ve already discovered that even being shot point blank with a .22 will do next to nothing to one, but now Destin from Smarter Every Day has decided to step up his game and give it a try with a .38 Special.

If you are anything like us, your mind has probably just been blown by the fact that even a gun as powerful as a .38 Special is not able to actually break the glass that is a Prince Rupert’s Drop. While the .38 Special is obviously not the most powerful gun in the world, the round it shoots does pack a serious punch.

We are certainly on the edge of our seats to find out just exactly how much it’s going to take to break one of these, and hope that you are too.
