    Are you a little scared to shoot now? I know it's a freak thing for the most part but it's gotta be in the back of your mind when firing. (Well, not sure how much shooting you're able to do since then) But that may have my mind screwed. At least for awhile.

    Im a complete ignorant about guns but if it was a regular barrett rifle would the chamber explode in the same scenario? I mean because the bullet is loaded inside the magazine. Because as i see this single shot rifle with a metal cap looks so dangerous.

    So basically that Serbu needs to be re engineered. Hot rounds or not that shouldn't have happened to you. I'll never use one of those for target practice, glad you survived also probably a good idea to start carrying a full on paramedic kit/surgical kit in the truck from now on if possible to stem bloodloss and wear a vest and helmet for any future vids

    Hunter HassTimme sedan

    Glad you're alright. I've never watched your channel before but is there anything to learn from this to reduce the chances of it happening in any other instance? You said it was older and rounds and them being too hot. Maybe avoid using them all together? I'm not a fan of firearms really but I do appreciate those that are fond of older collectibles. If there's no safe way to fire something I would just completely avoid it at all costs. Even if the probability is like. 001% I still wouldn't take the risk for something that is just considered a hobby. Like I said though glad you're okay. Stay positive

    The threads don't need 85.000 psi to blow off it takes 165.000 psi, mark serbu did a video talking about it, also notice that the slap round doesn't have the cut outs on the sabo plastic, wich means those rounds where hand loaded and another thing for that preasure to build up, YOU NEED PISTOL POWDER ON A 50. BMG ROUND SHEESH, THATS NOT HOT THAS A BOMB HANDS DOWN... I need scot to see this comment because, I don't know where he boght those rounds but jesus christ...

    Wow, yer Dad definitely saved your life. So glad you're ok. 🙏 Nothing like a close brush with death to put things in proper perspective, and add sweetness to all the little things in life. I've had several close calls over the years, of varying risk/severity, but nothing involving a firearm and a lacerated jugular. You win, brother, and not by a little. And props for showing the footage. "They take this long rod and poke it through your ribcage into your lung, and it ... wasn't fun." Understatement. 😂😖😱 Question: By "very hot" I assume that means it was a heavily overfilled hand loaded shell ?

    New sub here. What a story and a bad one at that but i think you saw the power GOD can have in our lives. I was in a bad situation years ago and i hurt so bad physically, i didn’t care if i died or not, i closed my eyes and prayed to GOD to help me get thru the situation and i had something happen to me that has never happened before, my whole body started feeling cold and shiver and a calmness came over me, it calmed me thru my situation and i know that was the power of prayer, power of GOD helping me.

    1st problem is you knew that these rounds were "really really old" and you knew they weren't shooting properly, yet u kept shooting them. That's a mistake, a big and dangerous mistake. Glad you're okay though, lessons learned the hard way. Man you're so lucky to be alive, God definitely helped u out there. Hopefully you're done messing with old rounds. And btw I also know what it's like to have God throw you a bone. I was ran completely over by a taxi cab on my motorcycle with no helmet on and my head never touched the pavement. God is great!!
