Plinking rats at long range

Dust My Broom has an excellent video of Canadian snipers in Afghanistan. ‘You Tube’ has “.50 cal” tags on it, but I wonder. The first shot in the video seems to throw a body 20 feet in the air.

Can a .50 caliber rifle do that given the relative umm, permeability, of a human body? That sucker had to absorb a LOT of energy, not just have a large bullet slowed slightly by passing through his head.

Whatever the weapon(s), here’s an “Oustanding!” to the Canadian(s) behind it.
