Description

When you throw a lump of metal at a very sharp piece of metal, the sharp piece of metal wins. You can't see it with your eyeball, but thankfully Gav and Dan are here.

(Little information on how/why the pellet splits) 1. Everyone should know this but, since the blade is sharp and far thinner on the edge than the pellet (0.177 of an inch) along with the force the air pistol puts on the back of the pellet causes it to split. 2. The pellet that was used was made of lead, the majority of pellets are. While being a lot heavier, it is also much softer than steel, which is what the blade is made out of. This difference is what makes the cut so clean and like butter, which you can see in 28,500fps. The lead on steel is also why the cut edge that Dan shows is so smooth and perfect, along with the great made knife by SOG! Which, by the way, is said like hog but with an 'S'. Thanks for the video guys, nice to see the split in action! NOTE: The reason real bullets fired out of a firearm also split is because bullets are made of lead as well. A lot of them have a copper lining on them, which is also softer than steel.

You guys should try something with glow sticks. Chop a load with an axe like you did with the lynx can. It would look awesome under exposed. Maybe even throw some into an upside down lawnmower! Ha!

You got hit because you're a dumbass, and you don't know how to fire a weapon properly. If you're going to do something like this and claim to be safe, you've gotta learn what you're doing first.

I just got the best idea: shoot a really big bubble with a real gun and see if the bullet gets all the way through the bubble.
