A couple of guys set up some boxes filled with sand and shoot different rounds through them to test the stopping power of sand.

I don't know how technically accurate this kind of test is...but still interesting...check it out here.

This falls in line with a myth Mythbusters confirmed as true. We all know that in the movies that the good guy dives into water to avoid getting shot. Jamie fired a Shotgun, an MP5, an M16/AR15, a Garand (I believe) and a Barret M82. They found that the MP5 went the farthest at a 30 degree angle, about 8 feet, but it was only a couple of feet under the water. All the rifle rounds broke apart upon entering the water, including the .50 Browning.
