Important Announcement!

Hi Guys and Merry Xmas.
The forums theme was changed this morning to the Xmas theme, but as normal, I doubt it is showing up.
So a quick fix for this is to scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the Change Theme button, located on the bottom left.
Click that and you will be presented with 2 options, simply select the Xmas theme, if that fails, select the 2.3 sense theme and then reselect the Xmas theme.

Amazing! You wouldn't take one of those in the shoulder and get up and fight back, like John Wayne poster_oops.gif

Takes me back a bit.

I used to manage a company that made, amongst other things, a thermal ceramic plate for inclusion in the casting of armour plate.
Apparently there was some kind of "round" that actually burnt it's way through the armour. The inclusion of the thermal ceramic plate stopped it burning through.

When cast the metal permeated the ceramic fibre which meant the temperature resistance was increased.

The same system was used in engine pistons to enable them to run hotter and at higher pressures.

Good vid anyway thumb.gif

It's not really one million feet per second is it? 189 miles a second? what the heck fires it.

Ha ha, there is always one.
Just because this is a airgun forum and you see fps, does not mean the fps is abbreviated for Feet Per Second.

FPS in this case is an abbreviation of Frames Per Second.
So that is 1 Million Frames Per Second, the speed at which the bullets were filmed at.

thanks for the explanation J-B it did sound a bit fast, and cameras a bit faster than my Box Brownie.

Strangely hypnotic to watch those splashes, the penetrating shots made me think of 88mm rounds and sherman tanks for some strange reason.
