This is What Happens When You Fire FULL-AUTO .50 Caliber Rounds (VIDEO)

This is a great video to show someone who thinks AR-15s and every other “assault” rifle should be banned — because it breaks even more rules.

As you’ll notice within seconds of starting the video below, the AR-15 used has been altered to fire the same rands as a BMG machine gun. To make things even more interesting, the rifle was configured for full automatic fire.

For anyone who doesn’t understand how ammunition works, the .50 caliber is one of the largest rounds you can buy. The rounds are thicker, heavier, and more damaging than what stock AR-15s are designed for. So yes — most of the targets in this video practically explode after taking a hit.

Let’s be clear about this before we go any further — all of this was done for pure entertainment value. As the presenters explain, this is not ideal for home defense for a host of reasons. For one, packing so much of a punch through a standard civilian rifle makes aiming the weapon accurately close to impossible. Also, there’s a good chance that you’ll smack yourself in the eye with the attached scope just from the recoil alone.

So, taking all of this with all the grains of salt you need, let’s watch what happens when you modify an AR-15 rifle for fully-automatic 50 caliber fire.
