50 BMG Over Water – Will it Wake or Rooster Tail? (Video)
Russ Chastain 04.28.16
When a large, heavy, fast-moving bullet passes over water, does it cause a rooster tail or even a mild wake?
The Demo Ranch guys decided to find out, so they headed to a secluded spot where they fired a Barrett 50 BMG above water.
They start out 2 feet above the water, then lower to 1.5 feet, 8 inches, 3 inches, and finally “real low.”
I’m not going to give it away. Watch the video below to see what happens. But I will say that the “real low” one produced the most interesting results.
