Video: Chain Reaction of 11 Rifle Rounds Set Off by BB Gun


This is what a chain reaction of 11 rifle rounds looks like when shot with a Chronos high-speed camera.

Line up 11 rifle rounds (5.56 ammo), rig up a BB gun to ignite the primer of the first round, then enjoy some awesome super slow motion video goodness. That’s what TAOFLEDERMAUS did in this Youtube video, and it’s awesome.

As you can see, it takes a few tries, but eventually the BB gun ignites the first primer and the rest of the rounds follow.

This is a cool experiment alone, but when you add a Chronos high-speed camera and shoot it at 10,000 frames per second, it’s a game changer. It’s amazing to watch each individual round go off through the tube, and you can even see a bullet penetrate through the target at the end of the video.
