What would happen if you were shot with a .50 cal?
Regarding this, can you survive being shot with a 50 cal?
There's really no way to survive a . 50-cal. 50-cal. hits with so much energy that it would likely kill you even if your body armor could stop it.
One may also ask, can the concussion from a 50 cal kill you? 50 BMG is strong enough to kill or seriously injure a person, even if the bullet itself misses. So, while a direct hit from one of those bullets would cause a lot of damage, I think we can safely say that no, the shockwave from a . 50 BMG near miss won't kill you (or suck the eyes out of the head of a deer).
Secondly, what happens when a .50 caliber bullet hits a person?
50-cal. rounds have so much energy that even depositing a small fraction of it into the surrounding tissues can cause it to greatly compress and then expand. With a large round traveling at such high speeds, the shock wave can become large enough to cause neurological damage.
Can a 50 cal rip your arm off?
A . 50 BMG bullet fired into you can rip off your arms, legs, head, etc. In fact, the . 50 BMG creates a temporary wound cavity LARGER than the average adult male human's torso, meaning if you were shot in the chest, anywhere within 1 mile from the gun, you'd likely be ripped in half.
