This Video is about recording sound effects. We were testing custom 50 caliber ammunition my armorer built for a video game. Our goal was to see how it shot and how it sounded impacting metal targets and dirt. We shot from 250 yards and 500 yards. In this video we are at 250 yards.

The gun we used is a Barrett M82 (standardized by the U.S. military as the M107) with a Barrett QDL Suppressor. The ammo is 660gr .50 BMG

Enjoy!

There is a first time for everything and recording bullet pass bys and impacts was a first for me. I’ve always wanted to try my hand at bullet recording but never had the knowledge or association with anyone that had a permit to use a gun suppressor. During the recording sessions for the M60 machine gun with the very experienced and amazing marksman named Richard from the local gun shop I began to inquire about what it would take to record some bullet impacts and whizz bys. I then consulted with everyone’s favorite weapons maven – Charles Maynes (my sincere thanks man!), and he gave me some valuable advice for these kind of sessions. I then explained what I wanted to accomplish with Richard and gave him the specs from Charles and we were off and running. The bullet demo in this blog post has some of the sounds recorded and played back at 35% of normal so you can hear the shot and the impact in greater detail, and they sound much more interesting slowed down a bit.
