How many people watch the Discovery Channels Mythbusters?

Something else: Even though they are in
Even in the ballistics tests (previous episode), the entire casts gets in there and fires off a few dozen automatic rounds.
Update: there is a company that makes a round for this purpose.
Update: It Comes in Pints has the full story.
