    Yes-was just being sarcastic.- Would love to buy some ocean front in Arizona - right after southern California drops off in the ocean-lol. I have nothing for or against the little cartridge.

    I would say that he is taking about the shock wave that is produced by the nose of the bullet as it splitting the air in front and to the sides of the bullet. There is a lot of air displayed by the bullet when propelled through the air.

    Not to quibble but pressure is in inches of mercury, 29.11" or whatever the value was, not in %. Unless you are using hector-pascals, then it is in millibars.

    Looks like shutter images to me, a true slow motion camera would have better/different image, than a regular camera in slo-mo mode.

    where do you get this answer because I disagree with you. I've seen a .50BMG shot through a house of cards and the house didn't even wiggle. I just don't see how a much smaller bullet would displace that much water

    You don't understand how it works. Why does a bullet make a sonic boom when it goes over your head at distance? Its displays the air.

    Then why would it disturb the water to dramatically but not touch playing cards...sonic booms are hardly biased

    Here's the video I am referencing to:



    At least in my head there is no logical reason the water would erupt from a 6.5mm the way it did due to air pressure while a 12.7mm bullet almost double the diameter wouldn't even wiggle the cards. Sorry, I don't believe you are correct.

    The tip of the bullet isn't where it's at it comes from the side so once it enters the object it is using the force to punch its hole as it expands through the piece of card board. I need to find a video that cites what I'm trying to express.

    I don't know all and can't see the best.It looked to me before reading all other replies posted that the bullet hit the twig came down hit the water came back up hit the board.

    I can't see it very good as I'm on a phone. Looks like it skips off the water.
