    Thanks again to Scott for another great collab. We’re already eyeing up that new 4 bore!

    It was great having you all out! Those shots were absolutely amazing! Can’t wait to do it again!

    Great collaboration. Loved it

  4. SmarterEveryDay says:

    I love that Dan’s impulse before doing something difficult is to take his shirt off.

      If movies have taught me anything, it’s that taking your shirt off before a difficult task increases your power by at least a factor of 1.5!

      I thought the same thing, Destin!

      Destin, your excitement when things like the flash of the bullet happen, is all I can here. Your involvement is all this video is missing! So much fun finding and learning new things!

    I think people forget that Dan is like a literal expert. He handled that all very well

    • Robyn Stephens says:

      It seems that Scott and Dan have great respect for each other. I am sure they had chatted heaps off camera.

      The default assumption for Americans meeting Brits is that they’ll be the tea sipping dainty kind. Once you tell us you were in the military though we fully understand that you’re the other kind of Brit, the cuppa having, world conquering kind.

  6. General Derpy says:

    These two together have been nothing but fun and joy, hats off to Dan for enduring all that power!

  7. Maria Sharapova says:

    These Kentucky Balistics collabs are genuinely some of the best videos I’ve seen this year.

  8. Gary McBrearty says:

    How many genuine WOW moments can you have inside 20 minutes? Thanks guys that was exceptional viewing

  9. SmarterEveryDay says:

    Absolutely beautiful.

    • SmarterEveryDay says:

      Imagine how hard it would be to model this with Computational Fluid Dynamics. Stuff like this happens every day and it’s beyond any computational power that exists. Really fun to think about.

    • SmarterEveryDay says:

      I love Gavin’s description of the “opposite square”. Perfect way to describe it.

    Those tiny cavitation explosions in the ballistic gel for the second shot was CRAZY.
