Slow-Motion Bullet Impacts (Video)

April 6, 2010

This is a very impressive video made by someone named Werner Mehl, who is either an employee of–or used high speed video equipment supplied by–a German company called Kurzzeit (which my rusty German tells me is English for “short-time”).

It’s particularly interesting how the rifling deformation on some of the bullets causes them to split preferentially along the direction of the rifling.
