    I'm not a scientist but if my reckless teenage years taught me anything gunpowder is a slow burn (slow by explosion standards) that's how it pushes bullets the slower burn of gunpowder gives a controlled thrust but the way that detonation happened id put every dollar I'll ever make in the future that whoever sold you those rounds put a small amount of c4 in the brass that was too fast even for a boatload .50bmg

    Just a thought…… how old are the rounds? Back during the Vietnam war. Special forces used to sneak booby trapped rounds into the ammo boxes and link designed to explode in the weapon on firing. The purpose was to knock the confidence the Vietnamese had for Chinese weapons and ammunition. Could it be possible you’ve gotten some old rounds they don’t make anymore from the Vietnam era that may have been designed to blow up like that? You can research it if you like it was a genuine tactic used by the Americans to sabotage ammunition.

    16:20 "If it wasn't for God, I wouldn't be talking to you right now." Excuse me but NO. More like: If it wasn't for your training, experience and readiness to act and put your finger into your neck to stop the bleeding and if it wasn't for your dad to be there for you you wouldn't be talking to us. This is so annoying when people disregard human accomplishments and attribute them to God. Anyway, I am very glad you are alive. Get well soon!

    Omg Scott... brother, I had no idea! I've been following you for awhile with my private account but wanted to reach out and say: I love your content, you never disappoint your viewers. I'm SO glad you are gonna come out the other side with little or no long term effects (except an AWESOME scar and story to go with it). Not a lot of people can say a gun in general, not to mention a 50 Cal, exploded in their face and they literally walked away. Keep healing fast and dont worry about making a new video until you are damn good and ready. You deserve some time off! God bless!
