Mosin Nagant vs Concrete!

How's it going guys! I made a little video today showing what the Mosin Nagant 91/30 can do to a concrete cylinder.

Mosin Nagant vs Concrete!



I hope you like it!

Thanks! The muzzle energy of these brown bear 174gr FMJ bullets is about 2600 ft lbs coming out of the Mosin Nagant.

Your comparing apples to oranges.
A mosin nagant and concrete are built for entirely different purposes.

How old and what strength was the concrete? 3000#, 4000#, lightweight?

Concrete is built for compressive strength but if you've ever broken up an old foundation with a sledgehammer you realize it ain't peanut brittle. Cool video.

I found a similar one online with a 50 bmg. The concrete explosion wasn't that much different except you could hear pieces of concrete falling from the sky for 6 seconds.

Yep. a HIGH POWER assault rifle... Every time I hear the media use this expression I just cringe.

Thanks for watching guys, glad you liked the video! As to the strength of the concrete I have no idea, I found a bunch of these concrete cylinders on my property and figured what better use than to blow them to bits!

Believe it or not an 80 gr FMJ out of a .243 Win. is just as impressive against concrete and rock. A 300 Win Mag turns concrete into a mixture of gravel and a dust cloud that just hangs around.
