Sure, you've seen .50-cals in action, but have you seen them in super slo-mo (VIDEO)

Through the magic of a Phantom V2511 camera, The Slow Mo Guys show the effects of a Barrett .50 BMG up close and personal.

Gav and Dan get a wallop from the shockwave of the Barrett and show off the result of the .50-cal’s recoil on the human body, then move to some muzzle-on shots and downrange footage. The debris dust-up due to the muzzle brake is almost as impressive as the altitude achieved by reacting pond water. In all, the next best thing to being there.
