What do bullet impacts sound like? Tons of different materials shot!

What do bullet impacts actually sound like? In Today’s video we used high quality audio capturing equipment to record the sound of bullets striking different materials. We used 22LR, 9mm, .223, 12 gauge slugs and .308. I hope you guys enjoy the free content and learn something!!

    Very informative! I participated in a range exercise in Korea as a 2LT…we were behind a berm and were tasked to listen what type or caliber and aprox distance was being fired at us. We had set up at 50 and 100 yard berms and fired M16, M14, M3A1 and .45. I have long since forgotten but it was a very realistic training event. For the final event, a M60 was set up from 100 and then 200 yards….very good learning experience that for ANY incoming, you want tobe behind COVER!

    TV post sound mixer here. I use lots of SFX libraries for impact and gunshot sounds. Id like to know which mic you were using for this, would be interesting to see of there was a way to isolate the actual impact without getting the shot crack. Looks like a SLR mini shotgun mic. The dedicated shotguns like a Senn 416, Neu KMR 81 or if you wanna go big, the Schoeps CMIT 5 might have better isolation. If I had access to a range and was a bit more dedicated in my own field, id try to capture the audio using that.. Then again Id also get some surround recordings to get the entire soundfield of the impact to get the best placement feel.

    Pretty cool. I know which rounds are subsonic and which are supersonic. I was able to predict before hearing these which ones you would hear the bullet impact before hearing the gun report. The 5.56 of course at long range since the bullet travels faster than sound you get to hear the bullet impact before you hear the gun fire. And the Benelli M4, since it is subsonic you hear the sound of the gun before you hear the bullet. Cool stuff.

      Well I mean, starting a family is creating a community, so if you have a wife and kids you already have a clan, so-to-speak, but most people won't find complete satisfaction with a family unit, so that's what friends are for. Also yeah, only having what I would call fake friends and trying to force known unsuccessful relationships to work is a huge waste of time and energy.

      @Samuel Hwang interesting, I'd say the opposite. Most people won't find lasting satisfaction with friends, that's what family is for. Your family should be your safe haven, the people you always want to be with

    Small note, most of the sound is bullet-crack and muzzle-blast reverb -- very hard to isolate out only the impact, but for a 3-stage-setup in a game that would be needed, where each component of the sound is a separate audio-file.

    Would it be better to use subsonic rounds from suppressed weapons? You mentioned the retort being very audible from the .223 and .308s, but less so from the .22s.

    I would be interested in the impact sound of a subsonic .300 blackout out of a supressed firearm. Aspecially because of the bullet's mass and because the impact of the projectile won't be overshadowed by the supersonic crack.

    It's really hard to tell, and I probably missed it if you did talk about it, but for recording these kinds of things It's really important to use a narrow FOV cardioid/supercardioid microphone to minimize the BGS and potentially isolate the muzzle report. Honestly GT, you should get a good library of audio out there and make it purchasable as stock audio for film/game use.

      Box o truth was doing this a while back. Website changed and the layout is funky, but rest assured: rounds good enough to disable a bad guy (central nervous system disable or massive blood loss disable) can and will go thru interior walls. Know your target, it's backstop, and be careful with the muzzle. 👌

      @PureCountryof91 If they're rebar and concrete reinforced then they can make for semi-cover but I would still try to find something else as a wall made of cinderblocks is not only easily penetrable but a collapsing wall could end up collapsing on to you.

    You should make a video on “do bullets travel down walls?”. You could set up giant white paper sheets around to catch frag. It would be interesting to see different material walls and see what angle of shot causes different fragmentation paths.. And how far we should stand off of walls to not catch frag/whole rounds.

      About a foot. It's not terribly common but it does happen, and generally everything hugs the wall pretty tightly. Most interior walls are not going to ricochet a round traveling at a shallow angle. Really only block, stone or steel, potentially heavy wood and some other off the wall shit (heheh), and it's really not straying far after impact unless the angle is nearly parallel. If the angle is shallow, the bounce will be too. Couple meters at most.
