What about a .50 cal from 1500m with no flash eliminator??

The reason this is so hard is it takes nearly 250 milliseconds for your eyes to see the muzzle shot, flip the image, send and send this image to your brain. Then your brain takes another 50-100 milliseconds to decode this information and send a message to your muscles to move. Then it takes another 75 milliseconds for this information to reach your brain, by this point the bullet has already traveled approximately 350 yards out of the 400. therefore you only have about 50 millisecond for your muscles to move your 175 pounds of body mass out of the way. Making if also Physically impossible to dodge the bullet.

Hard to dodge anything with your feet flat on the ground. You would think keeping on your toes like a goal keeper may have helped a little.

Logic explanation: unless you see the bullet flying from 500 meters away, it is not possible to dogde a bullet. Why? This dude tries to dodge the bullet by its sound but the speed of sound is 340 meters per second while the speed of the bullet is about 2 - 4 times faster than the sound, so by the time he hears something to start reacting, the bullet already get him.

i am amazed that they know what a millisecond is, shouldnt they call it a 1/12 of a chewpacabra.

It's impossible to dodge a bullet, well maybe not, just catch the bullet in you butthole 😀
'OnideusMadHatter' 2 weeks ago
The trick isn't to dodge the bullet, the trick is to dodge the actions of the shooter. That is, where is the shooter looking and is he pulling the trigger. You can dodge the pull of the trigger, because it's the movement of a finger, you can't dodge a bullet though once it has been fired.

You could dodge a bullet. It would just have to be under the right conditions. Say around dusk. Lets say you are 1000-1200 yards out from the enemy. The enemy has a 308. You would have a second and a half to move maybe even two seconds. (depending on what grain bullet and how much it slows in flight) . At dusk you would see the muzzle flash. Its a one in a million situation but to say its impossible makes no sense. A second and a half to move is if the bullet stayed at 2700-2800fps the whole way. But thats obviously not what would happen. I just don't even know how to begin doing math for that.

Jaime was smarter about dodging than Adam. Turn and retreat gets your bulk out of the way faster than leaping sideways.
'kamikaze00007' 3 weeks ago
I'm surprised nobody seems to mention the fact that the guy actually doing the dodging here in this test is actually altering his focus and attention from the muzzle flash to the gun that's actually in front of them before they could dodge. Since the bullet itself isn't from the tip of the flashing muzzle, it's pretty much like the bullet itself teleported the whole way up to the actual paintball gun's muzzle where it gets fired up close. In terms of milliseconds and reaction time based on many factors like a human's cognitive focus and it's effectivity, there's a big discrepancy that invalidates this test's results for me (at least on the paintball side). The dodging done and being tested here relies on a human's visual cognitive speed in combination to reflexes and movement impulse speed. If he could see the flash but has to change his sights towards the tip of another barrel in order to begin tracking the coming projectile, it's much more difficult to say it's an apples to apples test.

Its very improbable to dodge a bullet... but.... if you use a very very very very very hightly trained martial artist that has trained all his life to dodge bullets.... then maybe.... maybe

you lost me here. Read real snipers' bios, they have to lead their walking targets by a whole step if not more at real life sniping distances. That means the bullet is in flight for long enough for the person to make a step normally.

Now pair that with a fighter reaction, somebody who can dodge a punch. Nothing superhuman in that. That's got to be faster than a normal person taking a normal unhurried step.

You need bigger distances?

Real bullets drop over time and wind changes direction. So this is technically just trying to dodge a paintball from 2 feet...... this is a fail test

Those 1000 yard shots made on moving targets are your only chance to dodge in the real world. You can hear it assuming it's not suppressed and you can stop moving and drop to the ground

The paint ball gun should have been pointed at the face.Its a lot easier to dodge something coming at your face, than it is dodging something coming at your body.

the only way to dodge a bullet is either to be moving before the round is fired or to predict when they are going to pull the trigger and start to move before it is fired

Since a bullet travels at supersonic speeds, they cannot be dodged unless you can move at similar speeds or the bullet is fired from considerable distance away. Unless the bullet is simply aimed poorly, it will hit you.
'HOLLOW HILL' 2 months ago
why they didn't use a real sniper rifle with .50 caliber bullet?
'Stermor' 2 months ago
they should try this with an elite sprinter. top lvl sprinters can react in 0.12 seconds everytime, which gives them 0.1 seconds to move. 0.1 seconds is about half a meter for them. it might be possible they could dodge.

What kills me about a lot of these "mythbusting" challenges is that they almost never take into account variables, or enough variables. Some times its a couple. I mean if your going to say the layman, or the average person. What about Bruce lee? What about bob munden? I'm imagining these guys busting bob munden 'myths' because few other people could pull off what he could with a gun. Just because one person couldn't do something the first day they tried it without no training whatsoever, doesn't necesairily mean its impossible. Like Bruce lee would have several times the reaction time of Jamie.

Just like not many people are going to pick up a gun for the first time and are an expert marksmen who can shoot on the level of a navy seal.

Real flash, at night. I am quite sure it will be visible from any distance you could hit someone from. Try a 2-kilometer shot on a moonless night in the wilderness, which should give multiple seconds to dodge.

Yes if you're on the battlefield in the snapper is 500 m why oral however how long it took him to be able to dodge a bullet you can have binoculars and you could look at the snap of the video on the sniper you could see it's muzzle flash and then you could quickly dodge it if you have fast enough reaction so yeah that's what I think I don't think that she busted I actually think it's true

so just spit ballin here but wouldn't this be inaccurate due to the speed of light being much much faster than the speed of a traveling bullet.
'Flynn's T.V' 3 months ago
It's not accurate because if you shotgun a bullet from say 1 k away it will slow down

It's kind of weird that they're actually not friends in real life at all. They don't even enjoy each other's company that much. Jamie has talked about this before. You can find the video about it.

'Masterwar15' 4 months ago
Well, you COULD dodge a bullet (or actually anything) directed to you as long as you can move fast enough. And that doesn't mean you have to react to the bullet, but just move around, with anything that has enough speed for the bullet to not hit you.

You could be directly in the bullets trail, but let's say if the gun is a standard 9mm, and the bullet was shot from, let's say, 50 meters, and you were at that moment moving aside with enough speed, you would certainly ''dodge'' the bullet (because if you didn't move from there, the bullet would certainly hit you).

Reacting to it is way harder, so it really depends on the situation, if you have to react the safest way is to predict watching where the guy is aiming.

well no shit. if a sniper is shooting at you there is no dodging it. for one snipers were created to shoot far without being seen because time between shots is to long. once the first shot is fired unless you have a good hiding spot you will be shot back at.

now most people have a reason to be shot at. if you have someone targeting you with a sniper its CIA or swat. and you been a bad boy/girl.

now in every day life as you guys keep saying. being shot with a sniper is unlikely. but if you're being shot at with just normal guns with minimal range than you can dodge the bullets just by predicting when the shots are going to be fired. which is more realistic. the shooter has to react to your reaction as they pull the trigger making it miss most of the time.
