When DemolitionRanch gets a unneeded item like this the first question that comes to mind is, ‘Will this giant ball of tape stop bullets?’ Let’s find out!
Duct Tape can be used for almost anything, but will a giant ball of tape stop bullets? When a DemolitionRanch viewer realized that he had a 15-inch, 60-pound ball of solid Duct Tape that needed a purpose he sent it in to see what it could be used for.
Of course the most obvious choice of course is to use it as a target and see just exactly what kind of stopping power the ball of tape has.
We’re not sure that going from a .9MM to a .50BMG was quite the step we would have taken if we were testing out the stopping power of the tape ball, but clearly that’s what he thought the right decision was. Now, we know that a ball of tape that size will not, in fact stop a .50BMG bullet.
