The .338 Lapua can absolutely wreck a block of ballistics gel (VIDEO)

Chris Hirt and Trent Griswold at Bullet Theory Films pit a carbon fiber Christensen Arms rifle in .338 Lapua against an unsuspecting gel block just to watch it dance in slo-mo.

The Christensen Arms bolt gun is super lightweight and it’s topped with a giant hunk of NightForce glass, but they don’t really need it as they rocket a 285-grain Hornady ELD Match– which is rated at a whopping 4,768 ft./lbs. of energy at the muzzle– through the Clear Ballistics block sitting just 31-feet away.

But the effect of the energy transfer, captured at 60,000 frames-per-second, is just magical.
