    You have to take into scale the weight that cable has on it. It can drastically change its durability or an I tripping?

    The cable had no tension, I hypothesize that if it was supporting an elevator it would snap easier.

    Cool vid, nice shooting. I work on elevators for a living. Elevators use different size cables depending use, type and capacity. Most passenger elevators use cables around 1/2". If you ever feel like doing a more accurate test, use a 1/2" or 5/8" at most, then pull the cable tight so it can't swing. Remember the cables are holding several thousand pounds at each end. The size and tension would probably affect the results. It still won't break with the 9mm, 🤣.

    Elevator has emergency brakes though, if the main cable loses tension they lock up and the counterweight is connected by a second break cable with the same result :) The hero would just awkwardly hang there with nothing much happening

    Depends on the stress on the cable when the bullet hits the more weight the more damage and the easier the cable fails

    Конечно не пробьет, но тем не менее трос НЕ натянут! А натяжение может влиять на разрыв. Ты будешь в матрице 4 сниматься?) Надо кабель один конец прикрепить в фаркопу машины, перекинуть кабель через дерево и второй машиной создать натяжение кабеля.

    No tension on cable. Try again with tension in it. I’m curious what a 9mm would do to a cable with tension in it. Would the 9mm still only wedge itself in it or would it cut wire or 2?
