How Long Does It Take for a .50 Cal Bullet to Fall Back to Earth?

50 cal

We all want to know, but no one has been crazy enough to try it. How long does it take for a .50-caliber bullet to go up and come back down?

First of all, this breaks every gun safety rule you've ever learned. Quite frankly, this whole ordeal needs to be frowned upon and it should NEVER be replicated in any form or fashion. Whether you're using an airsoft gun, a BB gun, a compound bow or even a slingshot, there's a lot that can go wrong.

However, now that we got that of the way, we all want to know what would happen. Edwin Sarkissian and his YouTube Channel. With a remote area where he is clear of any possible injury or harm except to himself, YouTuber Edwin Sarkissian aims to find the answer to this question.

Here's the video:

The helicopter noise alone as the bullet spins back to earth is enough to freak me out. I can't imagine what that would feel like in person.

I was pretty much going into this video with no expectations, so I found the results to be very intriguing.

Once again, please DO NOT try anything like this yourself.
