The Slow Mo Guys offer up a brief lesson on how bullets work, then show us what happens when you fire a projectile from a tiny pinfire gun at the primer from a normal-sized bullet. It’s fascinating to see how a bullet behaves when it doesn’t have a gun to contain it.
The Slow-Mo Guys do their best How Ridiculous impression by testing how many panes of glass they can shoot through with a single bullet. But it’s not that answer that’s the most interesting thing in this video; it’s the amazing high-speed footage of each bullet’s path and the destruction left in its wake.
BecomingBetter’s puzzle consists of six interlocking bullets which come together to form a pointy, abstract sculpture. It’s easy to take apart, but challenging to reassemble. Choose from a .308 caliber or larger .50 caliber BMG rounds. While we wish they were made from metal, they’re 3D printed from metallic PLA filament.
If you’ve been to a firing range, you’ll see countless shell casings littering the ground. Seth over at Robinson Foundry wanted to put these to use, so he melted down the brass casings and turned them into custom coins. He created the shapes by 3D printing coin models, then placed them into a sand mold for casting.
An LED keychain light designed to look like a bullet casing. Offers 130 lumens of brightness, and is IPX-8 waterproof. While the two-toned brass and copper version is more authentic looking, it’s hard for us to resist anything made of titanium. Guess we’ll just have to buy both.
These unique 1.5oz. shot glasses have a real bullet embedded in them, so they look like they’re being melted by the heat of the traveling projectile. Each handcrafted glass is made by Wisconsin glass studio BenShot. They also make a cool slanted glass and a tumbler.
