Just some testing of a few kinds of ammo underwater.
Nothing amazing but pretty cool non the less.
Enjoy

At 1:22 it looks like marshmallow. This is really cool but is it safe to be in swimtrunks?

I've never fired a gun before but I'd be worried about shooting something off and it's not my eye

That's a really good question and I have to say I didn't consider it but now that you brought that up, I don't think I could do what he does and not be super nervous.

Yea. Firing underwater can be very dangerous. If the round is not symmetrical it can curve back and hit you. Also because of the thick atmosphere it can put a lot of stress on the barrel and internal parts as it has to force the water out of the barrel.

Another problem is if your ears are underwater you can rupture your eardrums.

Nice vid and he mentions smarter everyday which is an awesome channel.

Didn't know that, learn something new everyday.
Due to shockwave?

Yes, exactly. You can see the expansion wave and count the number of times it cycles in the slow motion capture. What you are seeing is the gasses that are the byproduct of the combustion. What you can't see is the shock waves bouncing these gasses back in on itself from the density of the water itself. Especially in a walled environment like a pool, these shock waves are literally very powerful.
