Canadian sniper makes kill shot at distance of 3.5 KILOMETRES


Hydrostatic Shock

I was involved in the development of a rock splitter device that used hydrostatic shock to break up inconvenient boulders. During a demo aimed at destroying a boulder about 2 m high, the boulder split up and a chip of rock nearly took my ear off.

Needless to say I am a believer.

Now if hydrostatic shock can destroy a boulder that size, I shudder to think of the damage the same shock could do to human tissue.
