How Much Force Does a Handgun Bullet Have?

How Much Force Does a Handgun Bullet Have?

A little “scientific experience,” comparing how hard a variety of handgun bullets hit. Just take this for “what it’s worth.” All it shows is what it shows. 🙂 Just for the record, we currently have no affiliation with the maker of this target. If you are looking for some quality steel targets, John and I would recommend you check out Action Target or MGM Targets.

    Three years later I’m still wondering what his problem was with that Yellow Jacket



  2. David Thorpe on November 26, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Enjoyed this one especially. Going to show it to my wife, as she has .22lr, .380 and 9mm at her disposal for range and carry.

  5. JackRyd3r on November 26, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Do not mess with 10mm holy cow

    My sister: “He didn’t shoot a desert eagle!”
    Me: “He didn’t need to.”

    I believe maybe its the ft-lbs of energy that decides the impact of the bullets, either way anything below 40 s&w does not really have much of an impact on whatever you are shooting and this is somewhat important because if you are making shots on an armed threat and he does not realize that he has been shot than he will simply keep coming forward and keep shooting but if he feels a pretty good impact (slap/push) than he will most likely retreat or take cover. 40 S&W is where that impact really starts, although the 147 grain +p HST was really impressive.



  8. NoobSavant on November 26, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Can someone name all the guns used?



  9. Joe Helvey on November 26, 2021 at 12:17 am

    The 10mm was rockin the tree significantly harder up to the .44mag



  10. H & G on November 26, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Great video, do 327 mag,



  11. Internet Explorer on November 26, 2021 at 12:19 am

    You gonna tell me that they fit an American eagle in that bullet



  12. Puppy Lord on November 26, 2021 at 12:22 am

    i really liked the 10mm and the magnums they hit nice and hard



  13. The Vintage Hifi ambassador on November 26, 2021 at 12:22 am

    Second last is quite fast, Magnum is great, chocolate or Vanilla taste.



  14. Dathseanious on November 26, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Great video, would have been cool to see a 500. Pretty darn impressed with the 10mm

    One of my favorites of yours thanks!



  17. John Daugherty on November 26, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Dirty Harry reference. Awesome.



  18. Dakotah Rickard on November 26, 2021 at 12:29 am

    You know the best part?
    Whether it’s .22 or 10mm, it’s ammo in a gun.
    Whether you get to have fun shooting targets or you’re put in the sad position of having to defend yourself, it’ll get done what needs doing.
    Thanks for giving us a video of something simple, scientific, and superbly shot, both in terms of the guns and the camera.



  19. Eric Chilver on November 26, 2021 at 12:30 am

    An informative calibre explanations thankyou



  20. Paul C on November 26, 2021 at 12:30 am

  21. Noah727 727 on November 26, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Man this guy is set for the apocalypse he’s probably got over a thousand guns



  22. Mike Mcnally on November 26, 2021 at 12:32 am

    I love how he says science experience instead of experiment 😂😂



  23. Cliff Hotchkiss on November 26, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Wish that was my backyard…..



  24. Lil Dave on November 26, 2021 at 12:35 am

    I’m in love with 10mm



  25. Zeke2552 on November 26, 2021 at 12:35 am

    He didn’t miss. He was just shooting the rear end off a few yellow jackets



  26. narendra irengbam on November 26, 2021 at 12:36 am

    How did the 38 special perform so weak compared to even 9mms.



  27. wilomica on November 26, 2021 at 12:36 am

    The ,357 SIG seemed loudest so if you’re looking to just scare of an animal or intruder I’d choose that. Let’s be honest from .380 up you moved the plates so I imagine they’re all lethal.



  28. Bill Allen on November 26, 2021 at 12:36 am

    I’m liking the 9mm ,,,but that 44 mag. Hits hard😃



  29. Daniel Aramburo on November 26, 2021 at 12:37 am

    Hornet is actually an ATF agent examining the guns.



  30. Floopus Doopus on November 26, 2021 at 12:37 am

    My dad has one of those old stands and one of the targets has a hole clean through it



  31. Bad Driver on November 26, 2021 at 12:38 am

    Fine Shootin’!! Love those revolvers too!! Have a great day , up your way!



  32. Edwin Salinas Gallardo on November 26, 2021 at 12:40 am

    Excellent wow beautiful 🤙🤙👍



  33. Dustin Johnson on November 26, 2021 at 12:44 am

    I am pretty sure I have seen all of y’alls videos at least once. So I come back and rewatch old ones and still enjoy just as much as the first time. To be honest Mr. Hickok I could watch you shoot cap guns all day and be entertained! Keep doing what y’all do and God bless!



  34. Seth on November 26, 2021 at 12:45 am

    what model of 44 magnum is that ?



  35. StormzyFNBR on November 26, 2021 at 12:46 am

    this guy has aimbot irl



  36. mike reinhardt on November 26, 2021 at 12:47 am

    What would be fun would be a black powder comparison of different pistols on the same target. That would really give you something to clean up.LOL



  37. geckdad on November 26, 2021 at 12:48 am

    that wasp looked down the barrel of a gun held by hickok45 and just casually walked away



  38. Bike Life Rambo on November 26, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Hickock shoot a 25 acp



  39. James on November 26, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Beautiful guns and some great shooting you can’t get any better than that😊



  40. Hunter Houghton on November 26, 2021 at 12:52 am

    All I need is 357/44 and 357sig/10mm
    The rest are just fun guns



  41. Kun Nagel on November 26, 2021 at 12:52 am

    This man honestly could shoot the wings off of a yellow jacket



  42. Brian A on November 26, 2021 at 12:54 am

  50. Omar 123 on November 26, 2021 at 1:03 am
