Think slow motion videos are cool? Wait until you see this slow motion video of a bullet splitting on an axe blade. Bullet Theory Films specializes in slow motion footage, here are a couple mesmerizing videos that are hard to look away from to prove it.

The first video shows a slow motion shot of a gun firing at an axe blade. A really impressive shot, but it makes for some even cooler slow motion footage. It takes two attempts at it, (Come on, you couldn’t hit it on your first try?) but they finally hit the razor thin blade and the bullet splits like a knife through hot butter.

The second video shows a skull shaped bottle getting shot by a .45 ACP 230 grain bullet. We really can’t tell what it is in the bottle, but what ever it is, it explodes and goes everywhere when hit by that .45. Checkout the video below:

  1. I did this when I was about 14 in a school gymnasium in North Dakota in the ’60s. We had a principle that was big on circus type shows and splitting a bullet was one of the acts. Us kids all had 22s and hunted gophers all the time. I don’t remember if I volunteered or was appointed but there was no practicing since the hatchet and equipment would have to be set up. On the night of the show and it was time for me to perform the hatchet was setup. To prove I split the bullet 2 candles of the same height was set up and lit on both sides of the hatchet. Of course with experience the principle knew exactly where the candles went. From about 10 to 15 feet off hand you aim at the line being the edge of the blade at the height of the bottom of the flame I fired and both went out to roaring applause. Great boost of confidence.
