I dont want to start a pi$$ing contst but has this been observed by some type of see-thru barrel apparatus with a slow motion camera or is this from a physics professor's calculations on a blackboard?

You can put a patch over a jag on a cleaning rod up against the breech plug, fire a 209 primer, and the cleaning rod will move quite a ways back up the barrel. To me that seems like a lot of pressure that wants to go somewhere in a hurry, but if Mr Sabot doesn't move until after his skirt gets spread into the rifling first, then that's really good information to know.
What direction did that last shot at Kennedy come from?
