Is that the bullet leaving the barrel?

I pulled some still pictures off of a video I'm working on. It looks like I can see the bullet exiting the muzzle, but maybe I'm just seeing the muzzle hole itself. What do you think?

I think you are seeing the bullet. But don't you lose cameras that way?

Probably wad or patch, I've seen alot of them on my vids and only one ball so far. I think the ball travels so fast that it is usually a blur and the wad or patch slows down so fast you see alot of them.

And cameramen....

I suspect he's using a mirror.

It's only a wad or patch, if he's using patches or wads. If none are being used, I think it's the projectile.
Cool pic, BTW, Mike. Sure am glad you're still posting vids and linking them here. Your vids are my favorites, and not just because you're a fan of BP, EAA Witness, and EAA BBBH. OF course, those reasons surely don't hurt.

Since we used to get photos of the back of a projo going down range from 105 and 155 howitzers just beyound the muzzle when photoed from next to or behind the gun I don't see any problem with believing that to be the bullet.
