A bit of destructive testing comparing .50 cal to 12 gauge (VIDEO)

The VSO Gun Channel does some head-to-head shooting stacking up the .50-caliber BMG against the good ol’ 12-gauge scatter gun.

The shotgun of choice is a JW2000 Chinese coach gun stoked with high brass 7/8-ounce Fiocchi slugs, while the .50 cal is stuffed with 647-grain APIT rounds.

After some comparisons through the chronograph and a discussion about felt recoil, they move on to shooting some mild steel to see what the real difference is.

Forget apples to oranges, this is comparing apples to bowling balls.
