Sending .50 cal BMG through the cast iron skillet test (VIDEO)

Edwin Sarkissian grabs a half-dozen preseasoned iron skillets fresh from Wal-Mart and, while they may be excellent for searing or frying, their ballistic properties are suspect.

Ozark Trail’s finest are stacked up against an armor-piercing incendiary .50 cal fired through a Serbu BFG and the shot is pretty dramatic. Maybe it is the natural plant oil they are coated with. Perhaps the stickers add some extra protection. Perhaps not.

In the end, (spoiler alert) cast iron is not your friend when it comes to BMG heavy.
