.50 cal ricochet hits shooter in the head [VIDEO]

No matter how many years of weapons experience you have under your belt, it’s never enough to skip basic safety.

This shooter is incredibly lucky after a 100 yard shot with a .50 cal sends a ricochet right back at him.

The bullet fragment strikes the ground a few yards in front of him and hitting him in the face. The eerie whistle of the ricochet can be clearly heard in the video before it strikes the shooter and sends his earmuffs flying.
