OK, so some folks don't enjoy the meat target. I like it, although I concede that it's not scientific.

But my man over at Kentucky Ballistics has come up with a neat combination of meat target and gel test that's pretty entertaining:

Crosspost from my box thread:

It's so smooth. It feels kinda like a slower MP5 in full auto. Semi auto is much easier to be accurate with than I expected. Dry firing an open bolt gun kinda makes you skeptical of hitting much out to distance, but the round is fired before the forward CHONK of momentum hits. It balances well with the recoil.

My buddy has never shot full auto before and he had no issues.

Their commitment to the bit and attention to detail at the beginning is impeccable.

There was an article on ars recently about a music composer who actually badgered CCTV into royalties over that poo poo.

Interesting read and it shows how daunting it can be.

Who among us hasn't dug up old mystery rounds of 50 BMG, shot a few that were observed to be acting "funny", and kept on shooting until our rifle equivalent of a threaded iron pipe with a touch hole in the back blew up in our face? Certainly not me.

Yeah I was really surprised at how the endcap is basically a few really thin looking threads (check here for those interested., like drat those barely look like more than normal pipe threads, and since only 4 of 6 were torn off I have to assume that first couple aren't really doing too much. Then once those go instead of a bolt slamming back into the gun body or something you basically just get the endcap as a projectile right into your face. Would not want to gently caress with that gun.

The first few mm of the cap isn't threaded to make it easier to put on, and presumably it's threaded the whole way to make sure the threads don't artificially bottom out.

After watching that thing disintegrate and cannon the cap right into his face I am making no such presumptions.

Mark Serbu talks about it in one of his follow up videos to the RN-50. I'm not sure where it is because Serbu's channel is constantly having videos go up and down, but that was the reason he gave, long before this incident.

Double post:

Mark's initial statement, he's getting that gun back to do a post mortem on it and release an analysis.

Ian has a huge backlog of videos and he doesn't necessarily post them in order of filming. What you see posted now may have been filmed over a year ago.
