  3. I don’t think it is real. The bullet has not cleared the muzzel yet there is bullet blow by of the gas. The bullets that I have seen in slow motion photos have not been red hot as the on in the pictue. I’m curious to see if this is wrong or right.

  4. If you see really high quality slow stuff there is a bit of air displacement in front of the bullet as it pushes that little bit out of the barrel. Everything but the “glow” at the base seems pretty legit.

    What’s the source for the pic?

  7. I say its fake. Even the 1911 will clear the round out of the barrel before the action cycles, and 45ACP is much slower than 9mm.

  8. The photos are real. The original photo and the others from the series can be found here:

  11. If it is real that would just be the start of the muzzle blast, not the bullet being red hot.

  12. yeah, is not fake

  13. I am thinkin its real. Notice the guide rod starting to protrude indicating the slide is just starting to retract/cycle. I also agree that the bullet is not glowing but instead that is the start of the muzzle blast just beginning to clear the barrel.
