    I took these pictures a few days ago while shooting some WinClean through my 40s&w CZ75b. It seems to me that the WinClean ammo has quite abit more muzzle blast than most other ammunition that I shoot. Sure does make for a nice picture :evil:

    I found WinClean to be surprisingly accurate. You too?

    I hate to say it, but I am fairly new to centerfire pistol and have not become proficient enough for ammunition choice to have too much effect on my accuracy ;) I do find it to be quite reliable, and more accurate than me to date.

    10-ring...

    From what I hear something in 30 carbine will give just about enough muzzle blast to satisfy even the most demanding shooters.... i believe that i should make it a goal of mine in life to take a picture of someone shooting a Ruger Blackhawk in 30 carbine at night :D

    I've found the 357 mag. winclean to be wicked hot.I can feel it on my face when I shoot it in my SP101.The 38's are a little light,and actually don't meet IDPA standards.I've had a couple 9mm winclean get stuck in my gun.Not sure why.Mostly it's reliable,I wouldn't use it as defense ammo.But for plinking and targets it's OK.:cool:

    Winclean Ammo

    Winclean is politically correct ammo that cuts down on lead
    in the air. Good ammo for blasting at the range, and good
    brass for reloading...but don't trust it for carry ammo. When it
    gets old, the primers sometimes fail. Seen it happen too much
    to trust it.

    Your mileage may vary,

    Of course Winclean has a large muzzle flash.

    They use the flame to burn crud & grime out of the gun, leaving it nice and clean, hence the name.

    Sort of like a self-cleaning oven. :D

    Probably the worst muzzle flash I've ever witness was 110gr Federal .357 mags out of a 2.5 inch S&W revolver. This was before Federal added a flash suppressant to this load (doesn't make nearly as bad a flash now). If I had to use it for self-defense, the other guy would be easily identifiable by 3rd degree burns.

    Outstanding pics. What did you use to take them and how did you do it

    wow, that's cool. :D

    i noticed the same thing when shooting my handgun, though to a lesser degree. of course, you'd expect that with .22LR from a 22/45.:p

    Try "Stingers" in the 22/45. It's the flashiest I've found so far.

    I used one of them tiny sony DSC-U20 digital cameras to take the picture (i have a regular film SLR, but did not have it with me at the time) It was actually very easy, i just held the pistol with one hand and the camera in the other, and pressed the trigger and shutter release at the same time. Next time i go out i will put my regular camera on a tripod next to me and set it for a long exposure, should make some cool side on shots :)


    ...... self cleaning oven/gun... :scrutiny: ...... i like it.... :D

    Another flashy one was the old AMT Automag .22 WMR. Man, that sucker was a hotrod. Didn't shoot it much, the concussion was literally shaking the fillings out of my teeth. Still it was impressive. Ended up using 30db NRR rated muffs ALONG WITH those little foam earplugs that are rated at 31. It was still too loud for my taste. Thought it was neat the way it made the armor ring at the back of the range. Kind of regret getting rid of that thing. Had no real purpose, but was an incredible noise maker.

    King Flasher

    The absolute King of all the FlashenCrackers was the Ruger
    single-action in caliber .30 Carbine. It had to be experienced
    to be truly appreciated.

    Eh? What's that ya said? Speak up!

    I have, but not at night. I love stingers...reliable, loud, lots of power, look cool (nickel case/copper)...did i mention lots of power? They blow right through lumber like it's not even there. They're also pretty damn loud for a .22LR.

    I'll make sure to shoot some stingers at night next time I'm out late. Mebbe take pictures too. :)

    Triton flashes. :cool:

    My 10mm's flash pretty good with the right ammo. The CZ52 wasn't bad either. :p

    Rem Hi-Vel 38gr coming out of the 5" P22 is an interesting sight
