Best quote of the whole video: "I don't know what you would do with this normally; maybe you would shoot a bear with it... or maybe a very angry man." He's right on both counts, though it is not the ideal choice for either.
The .50 Action Express (AE) cartridge can fire a 300gr bullet at over 1,500 feet per second. This load produces a staggering 1,600 foot pounds of energy (compared to ~400-500 foot pounds from a .45 ACP). It would do a number on a bear (just look what it did to those cement blocks), if you could hit what you're aiming at.
I've shot a Desert Eagle chambered in .50 AE, and the recoil it produces is ridiculous. The gun is difficult to shoot accurately and is not a good choice for an inexperienced shooter. However, I'm very impressed with how well he shoots it.
