Will a .50 BMG Stop a Car Engine?

.50 bmg vs. car engine

Just how powerful is the .50 BMG cartridge? Let’s find out.

The .50 BMG cartridge is one of the mightiest calibers on the planet. It can smash through many obstacles and nail targets way out there with more than enough knockdown power.

Will one shot from this mighty cartridge stop a car engine?

Well, 704 Tactical decided to put in to the test with this YouTube video. After only two shots, this old junker car done for!

We’d like to give a special thanks to 704 Tactical for sharing this fun and educational shooting video.
