Video of Bullets Hitting Various Objects in Slow-Mo
Notoriously Conservative ^ | 10 10 2009 | Notoriously Conservative

Posted on 10/10/2009 5:57:13 PM PDT by Notoriously Conservative

A 10-minute video showing the impact of bullets on various targets at 1 million frames per second. It was made by German engineer Werner Mehl who created the PVM-21 infrared chronograph, in many respects the most sophisticated ballistic speed-measuring system.

Video found here.

Any .44 MAG footage? I’m partial to that caliber. You’d never know it by my screen name though.

Amazing display of Physics there.
Thank you for posting it.

The lesson is, if you want to stop a bad guy who’s standing in the open, go soft.

If you want to stop a bad guy who’s behind something, go hard.

If you want to stop multiple bad buys hiding behind something, use .50 cal.

Fun video, but I guess I am too much of an engineering geek. I wanted details about caliber, target material and impact velocity.

The shotgun blasts at the end were also pretty cool.

Thanks for the ping, cool video.

But what is that weird slug at the beginning with that funky pointed tail? Never seen the likes of it, got to be some strange French thing.

Instead of the dumb music, I would have preferred some info on what exactly the bullets were hitting and what type of bullets they were. Otherwise it is very cool.

Thanks for that link. Amazing. It was cool to see the wad moving at nearly the same speed as the shotgun pellets.

What’s interesting is how similar those impacts are (albeit on a smaller scale) to the depictions of meteor/asteroid impacts.

I’m with you Karl. I’m nowhere close to an engineer but my dad was a metalurgy and ballistics expert. I would love to know calibers, loads, distances, projectile and target makeups, velocities AND foot-pounds of terminal impact.

Terminal ballistics as art. Nice.

I would like more tech info. Maybe rather than the creators copyright, he could put bullet specs and target consistency stats on the video. Then it would be art and science.

Most porno music sucks...just the way things are. There is a reason the mute button was invented.
