I'm surprised at the soda cans spurtting so much in the direction of the source of the bullet.

I guess that explains Kennedy's head. I always thought that since the back of his head was damaged so badly, the bullet had to come from the front, but I guess not.

The can's reaction is a result of hydrastatic pressure. Since water cannot be compressed it has to move when under pressure. For an instant there is only one place for it to escape until the bullet reaches the back of the can.
 
Very cool. I especially like the water bottle. Is it me or can you sort of see the effects of the spiralling bullet on the water? Maybe it's just the ribs on the bottle itself ...

In any case, really cool!

Thanks

Yep, path of least resistance is the only hole in the can till the bullet punches through the backside.

I want to see some tannerite in super slowmo.
