    Yes. It's certainly a good thing that the high-speed camera came around or the .22 never would have taken off. :D

    The first high speed photos I saw of bullets were made by Doc. Edgarton...back in the '40's (maybe)...anyway, they were old. Really cool stuff. The photos may be on the National Geographic web site. I've not tried to find them.

    It's not even 22lr, it's likely a 22 air pistol/rifle. The first picture claims a .22 bullet traveling at 450fps... I don't think .22 short even pushes that slow.

    Probably trying to ban the scary air rifles... err.. sniper rifles!

    There's a video on YouTube under 'Bullets @ 1,000,000 fps' or some such thing. (frames per second) with a bunch of steel & glass impacts & even some primer cord. It is truly remarkable.

    isn't the telegraph in the UK? I'm surprised they even let someone in the same room as a live .22LR round.

    geez, someone could have been killed!!

    There you go... that video blows my mind. It's so cool to watch how the behavior of these normal materials changes radically at "bullet speeds".

    I caught that too, I'm pretty sure they messed up and meant to write 450 m/s.

    Unfortunately the UK is a glimpse into our dystopian future.

    Do I see microgroove rifling?

    Looks like it's a marlin rifle firing those bullets.

    I have some CCI quiet 22LR rounds that are listed at 710fps on the box. If it's like other 22LR, the rated speed usually figures a rifle, and it's substantially slower out of a handgun.

    I like the one where you can see the bullet inside the balloon.
