50 Cal. - (that's 1/2 inch in diameter)

This is a very, very lucky shooter. The guy is shooting a 50 cal rifle.

Watch the dust when the bullet returns after he fires.

The target, a steel plate was 1000 yards away. You can hear the ping of the hit, and then the bullet comes back and hits his earmuffs. You can actually hear the bullet as it tumbles through the air on its course back toward the shooter.

He is okay and obviously very lucky.

I have never heard of one coming straight back! I think God was trying to tell him something.

That's unbelievable!! Bullets pretty much flatten out when they hit IRON, absorbing most of the bullet's energy! That's amazing that it could completely reverse its trajectory and still have that much power. Notice, also, that it bounces off the ground right in front of him, scrubbing off even more speed.. That guy is lucky as hell!

A local politician near me was playing with a M1A2 and was cited after putting holes in a house and car 2 miles downrange.

I have to confess I find this hard to believe. To travel that far, hit an object dead on solid enough to repel it and then have enough energy to return straight back. I guess I am skeptical. Hard to believe.

I know exactly what you mean. I'm still scratching my head!
