Lighting Matches with a Bullet?

Lighting Matches with a Bullet?

The recent YouTube sensations at the "Smarter EveryDay" crew are becoming known for proving and disproving theories and putting together some downright awesome experiments.

Their latest test caught our eye. The guys try lighting matches with a single bullet. Check out the video below. It might have taken some determination and tweaking, but these would-be scientists eventually did the job with a single round fired from their Ruger 10-22. As always, we suggest you don't try this a home.

What do you think of their test?
