    Check this out (watch it in 720p HD if you have the bandwidth):

    I thought that was kind of cool. I've seen it before. I didn't see the bullet with my naked eye (although I have in the past), but I caught it on video and noticed it at home.

    If the sun is just right (in this case to my back) it will hit a bullet just right allowing you to see it in flight to the target.

    The plate is a little over 50 yards away and I'm shooting a 230gr lead bullet at about 850fps (from the muzzle).

    Pretty cool.:)

    I see bullets in flight all the time but I've never tried to get one on video.

    Good shooting at 50 yards to.

    next time you're at the range with a .45 230grn fmj, watch closely--you can see little flickers of light going downrange.

    that's the sun reflecting off the round. not hard to see. the .45 is a big fat slow moving bullet.

    Trying shooting a 22lr at long ranges (200 yards or so). With a quality scope, and the sun just right, you can watch the bullet for most of its flight. Pretty cool.

    Check out the Aguilla No Gunpowder 22 ammo under the same conditions. Really obvious then.
