HEAT rounds are highly illegal though I am sure you could find them with the magic of the internet.
And one more thing...slower burning is not directly related to less powerful. In fact in many rounds a slower powder will actually give higher velocities when loaded with the proper amounts.
The classic "youll shoot you eye out" comes to mind.
Anyone who owns a gun should know you never fire at a solid target like steel. Common sense plus it is in the manual of every single gun and on the box of ALL ammunition. Even shooting at a rock is a bad idea. Idiots like this are where gun control advocates get their power.
(it is funny though!)
Secondly, a HEAT warhead`s minimum size is a bit larger than a .50 cal round.
and, no, the .50 BMG is not banned from civilian purchase, it`s just expensive as hell and semi-hard to find.
anything military can be resold to the public (usually at a 300% + markup) so long as any distinguishing "military" characteristics are removed. Exception: .50 BMG HEAT rounds can be purchased LEGALLY, but it takes a lot of cash and it depends which state you live in.
btw, the bullet had to be tumbling to whisle like that, so it wouldn`t have taken his head off.
and yes, this is defiantly a repost.
When a bullit goes up into the air as ricochet it will fall only as fast as something that`s dropped from however high it goes into the sky, considering you heard it the entire time, it didn`t go very high. even if it did go high, because it still always falls like a falling object in that situation, it`s no more dangerous than a penny dropped from an office window.
It was on Mythbusters.
i believe it was
WHEEEEEEEeeeeee..... THUNK! Oh willy! we`re not doing that anymore!
