    those first two were tapered on both ends

    what different media are they blasting into.......a couple of those bullets went completely through..............useless wound........heat sealed the wound

    those glancing shots were pretty slick
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Some looked like lead to me. A couple like steel. But, I really don't know for sure.

    Looks like some ballistic gelatin in there too. I really love the look of the buckshot at the end hitting the animal silhouettes. Great stuff!
    Not as lean, not as mean, but I'm still a hardcore, ass-kicking, hard charging Marine! Oohrah!

    The video is cool

    But, I don't believe they were traveling at 1,000,000 FPS(189.39 miles per sec).

    A million frames a second. Maybe. I'm not sure they have that technology either.

    I don't know of any man made weapon that even comes close.
    Could be a typo. Either way, it's different.

    Yea no way that must be a typo. I shoot 5.56 at 3400fps, I'm sure the military has stuff much faster but that no where near that.

    Indeed. High speed X-ray. Exposure times in the tens of nanoseconds and frame rates above 1 million frames / second.

    Unrelated, but speaking of high speed...

    In my lab we have a multiphoton microscope used for high resolution cell imaging. It uses a pulsed infrared laser which has a pulse width of about 20 femtoseconds (0.000000000000020 sec.) and a peak power of ~ 100 kilowatts.
