What happens when in the name of science a big revolver must be destroyed?
Well this Smith & Wesson X-frame revolver is about to go into orbit.
Watch as Kentucky Ballistics kabooms this .500 S&W Magnum revolver all caught in slow motion.
Ever hear of the dangers of a squib projectile in a firearm barrel? Well pressures spike and on occasion the gun kabooms into a violent dance of shrapnel and hot gases. It’s never anything you want to experience yourself.
The Smith & Wesson X-frame revolvers are of an extremely heavy duty build. It takes a lot to damage them but it can be done. A spiked high pressure load and an obstructed bore turned this behemoth revolver into a hand grenade. Check out the incredible carnage and remember, always watch out for squibs and never use questionable ammunition.
