WTF: Less Lethal .50 BMG

    Less Lethal Africa, a South African company, had their less lethal .50 BMG rounds on display at SHOT.

    While these rubber bullet loaded cartridges are not powerful enough cycle a rifle or machine gun action, I do wonder what the effect of a large pointed piece of polymer hitting a protester in the stomach. I suspect it is less “less” and more lethal.

    UPDATE: Apparently this ammunition is designed for anti-piracy use at long ranges.
