    Went to the range today. Wife was doing some pistol shooting. Here is the
    flash using 14 grs. of Swiss in her 32 cal. I then shot some video and I went
    back frame by frame and found the ball. I haver been able to do this before.
    I used the camera on the new I-Pad ver 3 to do this.

    Wow. Neat photos (including the archery one). Anyone who read Berry Benson's Civil War Memoirs will recall how he saw a ball in flight. It whizzed by his ear and barely missed him.

    I've seen the reflections off the bases of .45 ACPs and .30-06 hollow points in long range shooting. Just a little coppery glint that rises and falls very briefly. The sunlight has to be behind you.

    I'm sure others have, too.

    Great pix, all of them.

    I remember we could see the shock waves created by bullets when shooting on a very high humidity day one time.

    The best photo of projectile(s) in flight...

    I can ever remember seeing was on the cover of Time Magazine (IIRC) in 1981 or 1982. It was an overhead shot of a U.S. battleship (New Jersey?) having just fired a full broadside off the coast of Lebanon (fire support shortly after the bombing of the Marine barracks) - all 9 guns were in various stages of recoil, flash and smoke rolling away from the guns, and SIX of the 16" HC projectiles in the air on the way downtown - THAT was memorable.

    Good morning
    I shoot 44 Russian revolvers. With a 245 grainer velocity is about 750 fps. It is real easy to see the projectile in flight at 25 yards with a smokeless load. With 3F.. well there is not much to see beyond the smoke screen for that instant.

    Used to like to stand behind the 105mm and watch the base of the shell shrink away in the distance. Yep lots of riflemen report seeing their bullets in flight.

    I am impressed with the picture in that it is NOT from directly behind.

    Am I in error or does that shot of the arrow demonstrate the intial wobble of the arrow before it stabilizes? Perhaps it is an effect of the back ground, but it looks like what is depicted in line drawings of the phenomima (sp)

    Yes that is exactly what it is, it's archers paradox where apaun release of the arrow the arrow will have some bending effect but as you can see it quickly straightens out like a properly tuned bow & arrow combination should.

    I'm pretty sure I've posted this before, but it was taken by a fellow CAS shooter, alias Birdgun Quail at a shoot in Alabama. This is not a still from a video, just an incredibly fortuitious timing of the shutter button.

    The big feller with the timer is my brother, Sawyer. If you ever see him with his 10 gauge, wear TRIPLE hearing protection.
