The guy is full of BS, he won't show you the other side of the does head.  It's not going to vacuum it's eye's out and kill it instantly.

I don't know the math on this, but I would suspect that a shockwave strong enough to suck out a deer's eyeball would be enough to break the poor thing's brain. I also doubt that if the bullet did go into the deer's head, there would be much left of it.

There's no shock wave, he could literally shave the hair off the deer's skull and it wouldn't do anything much less suck the eye balls out  :chuckle:

I shot a whitetail doe between the eyes once with my 300 win mag.  There was a lot more damage than the deer he shot (or didn't shoot?).  The eyeballs both popped out and the brain was liquified into white goo that ran out.  It was a mess.

You got a solid penetrating hit then,  the guy in the video was off to one side and just tagged the skull knocking off a chunk on the side that he won't show you in the video.

Was definitely a solid hit.  She was looking right at me and I hit her directly between the eyes.

It grosses me out a little on a purely aesthetic level. But fine, whatever he wants to do. I don't see it as inhumane or an unfair advantage over other hunters. In general, we should avoid legislating aesthetics.

If people are hunting with that powerful a weapon though I hope they'll go the extra mile to avoid meat damage and bullets travelling past the target.

Less meat wastage than an animal that is lost due to insufficient caliber/energy/placement.

Left eye entrance, right eye exit.  I think you're right... he's a BS expert.  Probably sells a lot more clicks that way.

It is foolish and wrong to mourn these men.  Rather, we should thank god that such men lived.  -General George S. Patton

I don't have a problem with using the 50BMG for deer, but I wouldn't call shooting deer from a shooting bench at the range "hunting".

 :yeah:  He's not "hunting" and its not "sport" what he is doing, ITS harvesting and culling out his private herd with a BIG gun.   No different then when the meat cutter comes out to the ranch and plugs a 2000 lb cow between the eyes with a 22lr.

I would have been more "impressed" had he set up at least 1000yds for the culling out!
