I’ve got a problem with this video. It goes to considerable lengths to test the theory that backwards bullets are more lethal than frontward facing pills. And wouldn’t you know it: they are! Only when we get to 5:25 does Mr. Ammo Channel point out that it’s a really, really stupid idea; split casings and all. An upfront disclaimer might have been helpful for ADD-afflicted and younger gunnies. Anyway, YouTube commentator Stephen D. King puts the idea into historical context . . .
During WWI, this tactic was used by British snipers with their .303 caliber in response to German snipers using a steel plate to protect them while they stuck out their head to shoot. The idea was that as the bullet collapsed on itself, the force would continue with a lot more power and would flake off a piece of the steel shield back into the neck or face of the sniper, NOT designed to penetrate the steel.
Huh. Danger or not, knowledge is power. I guess. [h/t gunwire.com]
