He'll have a scar with a very interesting story behind it to be sure.
He has 12-1200 times the pain threshold then me
Obviously, something was off with that round as a 7.62 should have put him in the ground, not in a video. I'm not sure what though as I'm no ballistic expert, but something isn't adding up. Hats off to him for dealing with that pain either way!
That was possible a fragment or ricochet and the velocity was weak, a direct hit and he would no be telling it!
Distance? And did it go through his helmet before being lodged in his forehead?

Definitely a ricochet, or his skull is as thick as a Cape buffalos.
A direct impact would have blown his skull into a hundred pieces with a 7.62 round.
A 7.62 round would have blitzed his melon open, sure. But the replacement 5.45x39 isn't quite the powerhouse and that has been in use for some time now. Obviously the wound isn't from a direct hit, but either way that's one tough mother fucker!
I would say a lucky mother F
