Video: How Many Car Tires Will a 500 S&W Penetrate?
Russ Chastain 03.07.16
“Hey guys, 22plinkster here” are the words that begin this video. The man who speaks them is holding one of the biggest handguns around: The 500 Smith & Wesson magnum revolver.
Hardly a plinking gun, eh? Well, I suppose it’s all in how you use it.
He said he’s gotten many requests to shoot through car tires. One has to wonder, “Why?” But then again, why ask why? Let’s all just shoot guns and be happy. Wouldn’t that be a beautiful world?
But let’s get back to the video. He loads up some Federal ammo with 325-grain Swift A-Frame jacketed hollow point bullets, and then he goes bang!
(Oh, and don’t look for him to actually shoot a tire on a car. That image is pure clickbait…)
