“I am sure myth busters may have to do this but I think a 7.62 round shot in the air would not do much more harm that taking that same bullet and throwing it as hard as you can at someone.”
Wrong. They can kill when they come down unless you manage a perfect 90 deg into the air shot.
You could be right, I am just thinking this out under the influence and even then it doesn’t seem like a good idea.
But I was thinking that when someone fires a warking shot in the air it is generally more close to 90 degrees than 45 and that the bullet will eventually lose the spin and start to tumble making it have more drag than a bullet that is rotating from the spin of the barrel.
I might have been confusing this with the drop a penny from a skyscraper mind game.
