    You were shooting a very large caliber with some “very” exotic Ammo, who’s history of manufacture was unknown. Fortunately you were young and strong enough to sustain your inquiry’s until you received proper care. What happened to you would probably have killed most people. But thank God, your still with us! 🙏 PS... I subscribed!!!

    This was not an over charge. You have a muzzle break on. There’s a huge warning in the 50cal snipers manual about not shoot these rounds with a muzzle break because they have a plastic coating that can build up in the break. I’m sorry what happened to you but I believe this is what went wrong.

    sir, while I'm very glad to see you've survived this accident and are recovering alright, I can not agree completely with the statement "that was nothing that I did". man, if I learned one thing regarding firearms, it's: "one barrel, one bullet" i.e never change type (or even vendor) of your rounds... but just listen to yourself @ 2:42/3:43 ... would you recommend someone to shoot a firearm after listen to him saying: I have no idea how hot this round is / these rounds are very old and not manufactured anymore... etc ... really, you're no fu*king idiot rookie! I'm really very glad you did get away with just a close call man... but hell, that's an accident, that could've been avoided... and if there's just that one takeaway, I can not stress enough how much I recommend using a friggin' BALLISTIC FIRING REST for experiments like that. godspeed!

    Glad you are getting better, next time wear a bullet resistant vest, hopefully if the odd change something like that happens again, that vest has a better chance of helping you. Then again it could also get in the way, it's why I carry will carry tampons. Fast expanding gauze. Saved my grandfather life.

    I watch lots of NLlike (to my shame). I'm not a young man. This is one of the most amazing videos I've seen. No car crashes, no dumb stunts, no jokes, cats or wild animals- but engaging. I had my mouth open for several minutes starting at about 3:00. I am so glad you're okay! I loved the way you explained things and talked about how you prevented losing consciousness by thinking about your family.

    Hadn't even heard of your channel until this vid showed up in 'suggested' for me. Did not disappoint! What an excellent way to explain/demonstrate exactly what happened for your almost-2M subscribers, of which I now am one ;) and so glad you're on the mend! Turning it into a 'merch' opportunity too? You a mad-genius! So is your other (better) half, for 'that' slogan! I am subscribed to a couple other gun-type channels, but this is my first visit to yours. Big fan of interesting/awesome weapons like 50 Cal / minigun / etc and non-standard rounds, despite being British myself. Here's hoping the rest of your recovery goes as smoothly! PS: I liked and subscribed to support you/your channel; wish I could do more, but am skint. PPS: Your dad is awesome!

    If you think about it, it blew the back cap off, those threads had enough, those thread are subjected to a lot of force every time that gun is fired. How much testing are small gun manufacturers required to do before selling something, I bet that could happen again with someone else who uses there gun that much.

    Probably metal fatigue on the guns part. You do fire a lot of rounds through that thing, and these are cheaper civilian versions of the 50 cal. I feel you probably put the gun through more testing than the manufacturer.
