The .50 BMG is quite iconic, and its muzzle blast is quite impressive.

The Slow Mo Guys is a YouTube channel dedicated to ultra slow motion footage of… well, anything. They are from the UK, so they don’t quite understand gun ownership – but they do capture some incredible slow motion footage of a Barrett .50 BMG.

Not only is the muzzle blast of this Barrett .50 BMG incredible, but you can even see a shockwave created by the rifle’s muzzle brake and the bullet spinning.
