The dynamic mechanical properties and microstructure of the (Al0.5CoCrFeNi)0.95Mo0.025C0.025 high entropy alloy (HEA) prepared by powder extrusion were investigated by a split Hopkinson pressure bar and electron probe microanalyzer and scanning electron microscope. The (Al0.5CoCrFeNi)0.95Mo0.025C0.025 HEA has a uniform face-centered cubic plus body-centered cubic solid solution structure and a fine grain-sized microstructure with a size of about 2 microns. The HEA possesses an excellent strain hardening rate and high strain rate sensitivity at a high strain rate. The Johnson–Cook plastic model was used to describe the dynamic flow behavior. Hat-shaped specimens with different nominal strain levels were used to investigate forced shear localization. After dynamic deformation, a thin and short shear band was generated in the designed shear zone and then the specimen quickly fractured along the shear band.
