Using a Lever-Action 44 Mag to Split Playing Cards

Here’s something a little different. YouTuber Target Suite, who certainly loves his 44 magnum long guns, decided to attempt to set a world record for splitting playing cards edgewise. And ya know what, he succeeded! Mainly because he was apparently the only guy who had ever tried to set such a record.
He first contacted a certain self-proclaimed keeper of all world records, which turned him down for being too specific. Couldn’t have had anything to do with the fact that this record involves firearms, could it?
Anyhow, back to the fun subject: Shooting stuff! He brings out his Marlin 1894 lever-action 44 magnum and some handloaded 300-grain bullets.
He’s gone to some lengths to create a card-holding fixture and set things up, and it takes a good number of shots, but he finally does manage to shoot a bullet through a line of 13 (12?) playing cards to slice ’em all in two. But later on he finds out the “2” card was already split.
He challenged others to beat his record by June 30, 2020, but it appears that nobody created a video of themselves doing that, so he apparently still rules the card-splitting world of lever guns.
Well, watch the video and comment to let me know how you like it (or not).
