    I heard about this, and someone said 1000 yards, and I was like now way, not possible to bounce back that far.

    But, if was only 100 yards, then yes, bounce back would be possible.

    It seems some people on YouTube are claiming it is fake. I dunno, it sure looks real to me. Is this possible? I've never shot a sniper rifle.

    If its fake, its was done well. I love how you can hear the round or fragment whistle as it comes back.

    +1... I have probably watched this video a thousand times since it first came out, trying to catch a mess up, but I really think that it's authentic.

    It is possible for bullets to bounce back. I've been hit by a 10mm round off a bowling pin (ankle no injury) and had a friend take a 45 acp in the neck (again no injury). Since targets are usually directly in front of you and perpendicular to the impact path I would expect the video to be real.
