.50 cal ricochet from 100 yard shot hits shooter in the head

No matter how many years of weapons experience you have under your belt, it’s never enough to skip basic safety.

This shooter is incredibly lucky after a 100 yard shot with a .50 cal sends a ricochet right back at him.

The bullet fragment strikes the ground a few yards in front of him before bouncing towards his face.

The eerie whistle of the ricochet can be clearly heard in the video before it strikes the shooter and sends his earmuffs flying. Safety first folks!
