How Strong are Bullets? Hydraulic Press Test!

How Strong are Bullets? Hydraulic Press Test!

How strong are bullets? We are going to use our 150 ton Hydraulic Press and 150 ton force sensor to find out. In this viral video we are going to crush .22, 9 mm, 10 mm .222 remington, 7.62 mm / ak47 bullet, .308 rifle bullet and .338 Lapua Magnum sniper rifle bullets.

All things that are crushed in this video are just bullets. Not any actual ammunition or guns are involved on the video in any way of form. Don’t try this at home, crushing metal objects can be dangerous.

Do not try this at home!! or at any where else!!

  1. Please buy a polarizer or UV filter for your nice lens. They are really only to protect the lens from damage and scratches. Much easier to replace a $10 filter than repair or replace your lens when something explodes.

  2. If you want make this test more intersting, you should try to get ammo with hard core, like the 7N1 russian ammo for SVD with hard metal inside the bullet.

  3. As a sniper, this was cool. Makes some sense on how certain rounds work. But, flesh and steel have different effects. The terminal ballistics. Thats what kills. All we have to call is internal, and external. Internal is combustion of primer and powder. External is afterward of the muzzle with wind velocity, distance, direction with corieolus effect if the distance is that great, spin drift if you want to call it that, air density and temperature of the round. But seeing the round hit steel, makes up for alot of questions I've had over the years. Especially cars and whatknot.

  4. When you did the 7.62 round you said it was a AK round you would be correct but your not bc the 7.62 is the bullet which is the same in the 308.the same bullet is in the 7.62×39 which is the AK round but its also in the 7.62×51 aka 308 and 7.62×54R.

  5. Its interesting to me to see how the shape and composition or hardness of the bullet fairs against the press, if it were a harder metal and a solid dense cube itd be possible to puncture the press but due to the curvature and density theres probably too much resistance before it gets squashed vertically, though the cube would do the same thing. Interesting i wonder how a diamonds resistance of pressure affects the hardness of the press and how far you could imbed it.

  6. Aw man, I was hoping you would have some monolithic copper and brass hunting or match bullets, and tool steel (or tungsten carbide) AP bullets. Do another video with these much stronger bullet construction types.

  7. God bless you all. 1Corinthians15:1-4=Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the GOSPEL which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are SAVED, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, HOW THAT CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES; AND THAT HE WAS BURIED, AND THAT HE ROSE AGAIN THE THIRD DAY ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES.
    Ephesian 1:13=In whom ye also TRUSTED, after that ye heard the word of truth, the GOSPEL of your SALVATION: in whom also after that ye BELIEVED, ye were SEALED with that holy Spirit of promise.
    Ephesian 2:8-9=For by GRACE are ye SAVED through FAITH; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of WORKS, lest any man should boast.
    Romans 3:23-26=For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being JUSTIFIED FREELY by his GRACE through the REDEMPTION that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a PROPITIATION through FAITH in his BLOOD, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which BELIEVETH in Jesus. Without blood there is no life and without Jesus BLOOD no eternal life.

  8. Largest animal? The Antarctic blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus ssp. Intermedia) is the biggest animal on the planet, weighing up to 400,000 pounds (approximately 33 elephants) and reaching up to 98 feet in length.

  9. Small caliber would've been great to see impacting in slow-mo, in my opinion.
    HOWEVER, seeing large caliber rounds getting crushed would be something! 20mm, 37mm, particularly AP. BUT if you could get an actual Tank round, say >70mm, that would be very impressive (and undoubtedly a first)!
