Sniper Uncorks Champagne Bottle With .50 Cal Rifle

When the countdown for 2015 begins and the champagne is opened, the likelihood is that you'll probably just use your hands, or if you're feeling really cocky, a kitchen knife.

What you won't be using is a .50 cal sniper rifle, and honestly, that's probably for the best.

That said, it does make us wonder: if you can de-cork a bottle with a sword, why can't you do it with a bullet?

Well it turns out you can albeit after a lot of practice. The folks over at FullMag have done us the courtesy of trying it out and proving that if you're a good enough shot -- and there's no one in the firing range -- then this might be the best way to de-cork a champagne bottle.
