"AWESOME" Photos of bullets blasting out of the barrel and hitting the target. Great to see what it looks like when I
fire my guns and hits the targer. Thanks for those
amazing photos. Keep sending the awesome information!
The thing about these pics that gets my respect isn't just that you got a pic of the bullet, but you took a picture of a bullet making impact that you had to aim at a tiny target all while being in a dark basement. I love seeing these pics!
Two kinds of good shootin'!
This gives me a new perspective on ballastics!!! Cool pics. Scott!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep 'em coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great photo, what kind of photo equipment was use ?
Garden-variety Canon Digital Rebel. The trick piece of equipment is an EG&G Micro Flash that fires a flash with a duration of 1/1,000,000 second. You simply take the photo in total darkness with the shutter wide open and use a sound trigger to trip the flash at the right time. It's not hard, just takes a little math and a lot of safety precautions.
A balloon pops FAST… or so I used to think until I saw how far the bullet traveled while the balloon still is inflated.
What caused the explosion on the head of the nail? Was that a frangible bullet shattering ?
That's a .24-cal. 100-grain Sierra bullet fired from a .243 Win. hitting that nail. It's the bullet splattering. Same bullet as in the "Just missed" photo.
I saw Dr. Harold Egerton, the inventor of the electronic flash, do the card slice along with some other amazing photos back in the day at his M.I.T. lab. These are a very well done. Keepup the good work. I'm sure we'll discover some more ballistic secrets down the line.
The EG&G strobes used for the are, in fact, "Edgerton" strobes.
"This Amax is scheduled for delivery" Got a chuckle I love my 208 Amax out of my .300 wm.
But please, wallpaper size!!!
Awsome pics!! What distance were the nail ones done at? Keep up the good work!!
