I saw it done with a golf ball off a tree. Dunno if a bullet could do it, but I saw the golf shot, damn near killed the guy.

Take into fact a bullet  and a golf ball share no resemblence. Imagine throwing the 2 on the ground and the bounce difference. The bullet would flatten once hitting the steel target if not go through it much less bounce back like a bouncy ball. Definately fake. My guess would be sound effects with fishing wire attached to the hearing protectors.

When I took a precision rifle class a couple years ago they had a bunch of bullet resistant glass put up with different objects behind then so we could see that would happen when we tried to shoot them through the glass.  We shot .308s. .223s, a .50 and hanguns.  The .308s and .50 was not even slowed down it did not appear.  Depending upon the ammo the .223 would go through.  But the handguns that was a different story.

A bunch of people were shooting at it with 9mms, .40s and .45s.  One guy must have been at a perfectly straight on angle.  He was shooting .45 and every time he shot the bullets we bouncing straight back at us.  He had no idea and shot a whole mag.  Two people got hit in the legs several people rifles got hit we were all running and ducking for cover.  An instructors finally gets his attention and he stops and turns around laughing as he was having a great time and could not figure out why we were all hiding.  Then we told him what was going on.  We were 100 yards out.  The bullets were hitting the plexy glass and bouncing straight back.  The we hitting the ground on the way back and then bouncing towards us.   None of them were going fast enough to do any damage, but it was still pretty crazy.

Not sure if you would get the same result with a rifle though.

If you look really close you can see the projectile flying back from the target.  The target is up on the hill.

Can't say if that was real. 
 
I was at a range many years ago.  These 3 kids had put cans up on the 25 yd range (the range was not monitored).  Either a fragment of the bullet or the can came straight back and cut the kid shooting on the neck. I was shooting 3 lanes down from him when he started hooting and hollering.  I don't recall what pistol / caliber they were shooting.  It drew a good bit of blood on him and he was scared poopless.

Its calmed down a lot here but i think some of that has to do with the cooler weather that came back.....When it finally warms up for good again I think we will have another round of it unfortunately.

Well, shooting on the surface of the Moon probably had something to do with it. 
 
I did that with a BB back in 1960.      Light It Up
