It’s undeniable that Larry Vickers has some of the best-produced gun videos on YouTube, and this slow-motion shoot only cements that reputation. It wasn’t too long ago when slow-motion gun play was isolated to just the Matrix trilogy and video games, but modern technology and the relative affordability of slow-motion cameras have brought slow motion to where it really shines: the firing range.

In this video, Larry and the crew shoot .308 Winchester and .50 Raufoss rounds at two large blocks of ice. Not only do the cameras make the sight a treat for the eyes, but at one point a GoPro on a turntable manages to capture footage of the ice breaking apart while spinning. The effect is so remarkable that in fact, it may just be video-editing magic.

We’ll let you decide.

  • MY PARTNER AND I HAD A CUSTOM BMG, BOLT, 10 ROUND MAG, BEAUTIFULLY BUILT / BALANCED, 16.8 LBS,[ FULL MAG]. EASILY FIRED OFF HAND AS WELL AS PRONE, RECOIL LESS SHARP, A POSITIVE HEFTY PUSH BUT NOT AS BRUTAL AS FULL MAG 12 OUT OF A COWBOY DOUBLE, [FOR COMPARISON], EXCEPTION THE AP ROUND DID PRODUCE A RATHER UNPLEASANT HIGH SPEED RECOIL. A BRILLIANT MIND, NEARLY A LIFE LONG FRIEND OF MANY TALENTS, GENEROUS MAN, LOST FROM THIS EARTH, RON FRESHOUR, DESIGNED AND BUILT THIS EXCELLENT MACHINE, OUR FIRST / LAST LINE OF PROTECTION FOR OUR HIGH SEAS VESSEL, THIS COMMENT INTENDED TO PAY RESPECT FOR A FRIEND.
    AS FOR YOUR “TEST”, INTERESTING TO SPECULATE IF SOME TYPE OF MATERIAL, I.E., GEL OR WOOD [SPACE ONE INCH APART] PLACED SOME SHORT DISTANCE FROM THE ICE BLOCK WOULD HAVE SHOWN THE GREAT ENERGY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO ROUNDS. WE NO LONGER OWN THE BMG, AGE DEFEATS MORTALS. THANK YOU FOR THE EXCELLENT PRESENT PRESENTATION. RON WILL BE MISSED UNTIL OUR TIME ARRIVES.
