Glad he hit the tree behind it. That bullet would have gone another mile and taken out 2 bears and a moose!

I've seen the results of a deer lung shot with a .50 BMG. The hydrostatic pressure was so great it burst everyone one of the deer's internal organs. The whole deer had to be tossed on the gut pile. If this guy couldn't see the damage done by the pressure of the round to the deer's eyes and mouth, he's a moron.

This guy can't be serious? He says it was a miss and the round has so much power that it sucked the deers eyes out, killing it ethically. Bahahahaha.

He hit the deer in one eye and out the other, that crap that a near miss from a 50 BMG can suck the eyes out is BS, just like a lot of things he says.

debunked by many and here is an example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrHpe5Z93wM

I let the nephews shoot the 50 in a creek bottom one day at water bottles one missed the bottle by less than an inch and it did not fall over. If on a miss of a water bottle does not knock it over how does a near miss suck out a does eyes on a near miss.

Glad he had that tree behind it but that might not have stopped the bullet, though it probably did since he was using a 750gr A-Max, which is an accurate bullet in the 50 for sure or at least it is in mine.

Made the squirrel jump though, it is in the lower right on the log when he shoots

Pretty sure that thing that sucked its eyes out was a bullet going through them.Lol That had to be a joke. I would think so anyway.

Sendit, have you ever tried any of the frangible 50cal ammo? I have only shot a few but they would do a number on hogs I am sure.

Nope, I shoot mostly 750gr Amaxes, a few 647 FMJ's for plinking. I have some Barnes TXS that should penetrate well but havent loaded any yet.

I initially believed his bull**** story about missing the deer but after I got to thinking about it I was like, this guy truly is full of crap. When I posted my comment it was more in amazement of his bogus story than to correct you.

Bragging about missing a head shot on a very still deer at close range with a .50. Then, go on to claim the over/under sucked the eyes out resulting in an ethical kill?

Putting aside that claim is BS, why would you post that up?

I know different strokes n' all but this on Youtube does not look all that great for the larger hunting community.
