Is that the bullet leaving the barrel?

I pulled some still pictures off of a video I'm working on. It looks like I can see the bullet exiting the muzzle, but maybe I'm just seeing the muzzle hole itself. What do you think?

Don't know, but that's the coolest pic I've seen in a long time!

Must be the bullet as the combustion gases are behind the bullet as it travels down the barrel.

Awesome photos Mike! I'm guessing you are right on that . . it is the ball . . . OR . . . . perhaps it is the slug from the cameraman who took this photo of you and what you are seeing is his slug heading for you? By the way, if it is . . . . that cameraman is a crack shot! LOL

Great photos - thanks for sharing!
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63

Its either the bullet or the muzzle. If its a time lapse pic its probably the bullet.
