Click the link or paste it into your URL. There's a warning message in red letters you have to click past telling you it's not appropriate viewing for children. Click past it and you'll get the video. No, this isn't porn. It's just something to think about as we spend the next few weeks remembering 9-11 and seething about what these bastards did to us.

not a sniper. this video has made its rounds on the net. most have it saying that its a .50 cal taking out taliban in afghanistan. one of the posters had it right, it's a hunter picking off some small animal.

Amazing how much energy gets transferred from the bullet to the terrorist. They just explode. Its over for them before they ever knew what hit them.

I believe it is known as "rock popping" where small animals are tossed into the air when the bullets shatter the rocks just underneath them.

I don't know that sniper's using, but it ain't a .50 cal.

Just go buy the video Exploding Varmints.

I was thrown off by the first kill. I thought it might be a perp hit by a 50 BMG.

Then he's using a Barrett or some other 0.50Bmg on the goats.

No goat or any other animal larger than a rabbit ever popped like that.

You're exactly right - it's not a sniper video. It's rock chucks (whatever they are) being shot out West somewhere. I once tracked the original down to a hunter website where it was described for what it is.

Yeah, right!

Why would you use a 50 cal on a goat you wanted to eat.
Watch the first kill, you can see arms and legs flying.

That web site has one other video of interest, it seems to be of an iraqi terrorist sniper picking off U.S. soldiers.

There's nothing magic about .50BMG. It's just a small arms cartridge, albeit a large one. It won't send human bodies flying through the air, or explode them like prarie dogs. It won't even come close to doing these things. It will make the body twitch more so than whatever rifle was used by Mythbusters, but that's about it.

.50BMG from a rifle length barrel is, approximately, a 650 grain bullet at 2800 fps.

If you want to make a human seem like a prarie dog, a better start would be a 25mm auto cannon as mounted on the Bradley. A 2300 grain projectile at 4400 fps.

I could have sworn on the last shot there was a secondary explosion of some sort, like the bullet hit a guy's RPG round in a pack or something. Did you notice that? If it was just an animal, why the explosion? I'm not disputing you. There's a lot of phony stuff on the Net. But the secondary explosion seems odd if just an animal.

That's not a sniper, it's a varmit hunter.

Not that there is much difference in the final analysis. Just different varmints, and different rounds as appropriate to the targets.

Oh, yeh, four legged varmints don't shoot back
