The .50 caliber machine gun is a fierce weapon. More than that, is has become the weapon of choice often by snipers based on it's extremely long range that remains accurate. It will shoot a mile and still has enough striking power to penetrate cement blocks and walls causing great damage to those hiding behind them.

However, there are certain cautions that must be observed. In the above video this man shoot what appears to be a tank at medium range. Watch and listen carefully. The round bounces off the tank, hits the ground in front of him, then knocks the hearing protectors off his head. If you listen you can hear the round whistling as it comes back.
