    You may remember that I have been taking high speed photos to learn more about how shot strings form and travel. The attached photo is an image clipped from a movie shot at 10,000 frames/second, that shows a clay approaching the camera, being chased by shot. The clay was hit and cracked by some shot about 1/4 revolution prior to this image, and you can see the plume from some subsequent impacts. You can barely make out individual pieces of shot on their way to the camera lens. These small particles are easier to see in the original movie, which is composed of TIFF files, and has better resolution. welderman (Tom S.)

    Welderman filmed this at the Westford Sportsmans club in Mass. Top notch work Tom! Each video was about 40 seconds and crystal clear, you can see the pellets hit the target and the target crack as other pellets slowly passed by! He was playing these for anyone interested to see on Sunday of the Mass State shoot! Hope we can see them clearer at some point Welderman....FC

    No one was injured during this session. In this snapshot you can see the 3/16/thick aluminum backstop with a 5 inch diameter lexan window for the camera to view the shot. Obviously, there was no one in the photo during the shot. Everything was done by remote control. welderman (Tom S.)
