You eat the head? That's what he was aiming for.

Do you think the bullet would have expanded enough o ruin the deer? I'm guess it would have passed through with minimal expansion. I think it's way too much over kill, but isn't that what the fudds say about our AR15 rifles?

It's always good to suck the head.




When eating crawfish!

Well, I guess we can now say you can use 50bmg to hunt deer. From the video it does seem like he hit something, maybe the mouth. I am skeptical it was just the pressure wave.

I have a pretty good idea what would have happened had he really hit the head. The head would be vaporized down to about the neck. There are some videos around if you really want to see graphic game management.

Don't try this on bucks.



I am going to say that it was not the shockwave. Looks to me that he hit something, just not the brain.

I agree...

That is deer NOT a hunting rifle...

It's no wonder gun owners get a bad name...

The only thing that made any sense to me was it was a management hunt. So they were culling over-population so i could see them testing an OVER powered rifle in that case. NOT saying i'm agreeing with it.

The shock wave is enough to cut a deer in half if it is hit in the right place.

There are 100s of weapons that can be plied in the taking of deer. Why is this one so wrong? Emotion, mostly.

I hate it when people, who would never or could never kill an animal, suggest to me the proper method and tool with which to do it. Emotion.

Some folks here are the 180 degree opposite of fudds. And that is just as bad.
