Instant ramen, just add .50 BMG (VIDEO)

While the popular Japanese instant noodles are cheap and easy, their ability to withstand .50 BMG fire has been little documented until this week. Voted Japan’s best invention a while back — even beating out the films of director Akira Kurosawa — ramen is one of the cheapest “foods” you can buy.

To see how many packs of the salty dried noodles it takes to stop a fiddy, Kentucky Ballistics does the research above — but don’t worry about wastage as they donated an equal amount riddled in the test to a local food bank. There was even some left over to test some pistols against the same crunchy wall.
