HDD vs Gun

What happens when a hard drive meets high speed metal at 30 yards? OR Shooting a hard drive with a gun…

Not as much as you’d think what a hard drive gets shot at with a .22 I can tell you. Below are pictures in order from the first shot to the last of what happens when you shoot a hard drive with a .22 caliber rifle at 30 yards. Take special note of the drives platters at the end. They’re pretty resilient. I was surprised. The nicely mushroomed bullet was the first shot I made. I was shocked to have found it.
