    Cannon Shock Waves in Ultra Slow Motion

    Thought you folks might enjoy this. There's a canister shot fired showing the balls in flight plus a few rifled cannon fired. High res slow motion - quite revealing.

    Here is 1865 rifled 7 inch cannon firing.

    I have to admit I teared up a little watching it. I'm a dork like that. Freedom!

    The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

    Makes me want to go watch one of the artillery competitions! Thanks for the post!
    When guns are outlawed only criminals and the government will have them and at that time I will see very little difference in either!

    Very nice! Those big guns make my little cannons appear to be toys (50 cal and a 1").
