View Full Version : Picture of Ball In Flight

March 25, 2012, 09:33 PM
Went to the range today. Wife was doing some pistol shootin. I had my new
I-Pad with me and I though I would get some pictures. Here is the flash of
her 32 cal pistol with 14 grs Swiss. I then shot some video to see if I could
catch the ball in flight. The ball from me is about 40 yds. I went frame by frame and found this. THE BALL in flight. I have never been able to catch
this before.

Not black powder, but a few weeks ago I went shooting with friends. Very sunny out, but we were under cover.

You could see the bullets from my .38 perfectly.

When shooting long range on bright, but cool and humid mornings I've seen vapor contrail in the air left by the passage of rifle bullets.

And I've also seen .45 and .50 caliber black powder bullets in flight.

If the sun is right I can see .22lr fly. Thats entertaining.

When I first saw this through one of my scopes, I could not figure out what it was. Once I figured it out, and I had to remind myself to pay attention to the target and not the bullet flight. ..... ;)

Be Safe !!!

At N-SSA skirmishes, you can easily see the bullets travel downrange when the sun is right.
