FPS Russia Takes on Watermelons with .458 SOCOM

Assuming you take his accent with a grain of salt, FPSRussia continues to entertain. Latest up is a .458 SOCOM AR, a round that continues to gain popularity as an intermediate-sized big-bore round. Equipped with Lehigh Defense rounds, the usual decimation of paint cans and other objects ensues.

Adding to his “testing”, FPS is now shooting ballistics gel, which the .458 SOCOM excels, assuming “excells” includes standing a ballistics gel block vertical by itself.

    Woah, near miss with a turlet shard O.O

    I'm not saying standing that close is a good idea or that he knows what he's doing and it's somehow safe*. But are we sure the close pieces of shrap weren't edited in? Like to make it look more shocking?

    *I'm kind of not too concerned. I mean it's not stuff I'd do myself, if FPSR asked me I'd advise him not to. I don't want to see anyone hurt. But he's an adult, takes risks, gets the views he wants. Makes sense to me.
