“Unique” Shotgun Rounds vs. Giant Gummy Bear

    Taofledermaus, whose YouTube channel can only be described as equal parts entertaining, baffling, and sometimes scientifically relevant, has done it again with a New Year’s Day post you may not believe. In fact, aside from giving the standard “kids, don’t try this at home” warning due to the type of…let’s call them “unique” rounds used, because they aren’t handloads by the traditional meaning…I’m simply going to let you take a look. Five shotgun hulls filled with rather unusual contents, aimed at a giant gummy bear. Enough said.

    Okay, not quite enough. Before this appears in the comments (“Katie, what does ‘taofledermaus’ even mean…”): we all know what “tao” means, right, so I won’t get into a yin and yang explanation. As for “fledermaus” it’s German for “bat.” Make of this name what you will.

    (One more thing: I’m really looking forward to the comments, so don’t disappoint! So many possibilities.)
