I agree with the today part, but haven't we all seen this a million times? It isn't really all that revolutionary any more.

Ah England, where 500 ft / sec is considered high velocity.

It's a freaking pellet gun. That's not what I call "high velocity".
 
2009-03-26 2:22:00 PM  
Sailer used a laser to trigger the Nikon D40's shutter, while the special flash filmed the action in slow motion - despite the .177 pellet travelling with a velocity of about 500ft per second.


How does that qualify as "high-velocity ammunition"?

Pellet, not bullet.

Has anyone commented yet on how an air-gun pellet is hardly "high-velocity?"

Allow me, then!

God help the British if they ever have to go to war again, they don't know the difference between a bullet and a pellet.

You see what happens when a country has farked-up gun laws? Your perspective gets messed up.

Galleries of pictures like these come out every so often, and every time they do they bring up the same two things:

1.) Things moving quickly are awesome.

2.) Writing captions for news pictures must be the most soul crushing job on earth.

Yeah America is really into high velocity. Just look at all the high speed trains we have.

"High-velocity" means 4,000+fps to me, not a paltry 500fps.

500 feet per second is high velocity? Perhaps, for an air rifle. It's about four times faster than a major league fast ball. (Very roughly calculated.)

I consider my .45 to be rather low velocity at 870 fps. When I want moderate-high velocity of 2700 fps, I crack out my M-14.

"High velocity" for me, in a practical man-portable firearm, is in the upper 3000s.

Still, pretty pictures. I liked the water filled Christmas ornament.

Whats revolutionary is that he didnot do this with an expensive highspeed camera, but with the cheapest DSLR camera you can get, a $400 Nikon D40. I have D40 myself, but I wouldnt even thought of trying this, it is truly amazing!!!!

special20: Just look at all the high speed trains we have.


Well, there is the "Acela", which is a "high speed" train between Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC, which rides on the same tracks as the regular Amtrak and regional mass transit systems.

So there's that.

Could these things BE any more blown apart?

I'm only low velocity due to the energy requirements to accelerate my mass, assuming speed is a constant.
 
2009-03-26 2:37:20 PM  
Any velocity in the UK is high velocity.

BravadoGT: Has anyone commented yet on how an air-gun pellet is hardly "high-velocity?"

Allow me, then!


It's not even high velocity for an airgun: There are loads of .177" caliber air rifles that will do 1,000+ feet per second muzzle velocity.

Of course, in the UK you need a firearms license for any air rifle that will develop a muzzle energy of 12 ft/lbs or greater, which with a typical 8 grain .177" caliber pellet, that translates to a velocity no higher than around 820 ft/s.

The limits for air pistols are even lower: 6 ft/lbs, which means a velocity no higher than about 580 ft/s.

Harvey Manfrenjensenjen: God help the British if they ever have to go to war again, they don't know the difference between a bullet and a pellet.

Too true mate, too true. I refer you to our country's magnificent performance in Iraq, where Iran's proxy militias and death squads thoroughly humiliated our army, (SAS aside).
All I'll say in defence is that this is the Daily Fail which is made for, and read by, suburban idiots.
