    Good work Toby. Shooting sparrows will definitely tighten up your groupings.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Rabbit time

    Range : 110m, shooting from the ridgeline at the top of frame.

    4 frames from a video I recorded, put the camera on the ground next to the previously shot rabbit, just wanted to test the effectiveness of the suppressor and see & hear what the target does.



    Frame 1. Just 1 frame after shooting, it's the shockwave from the bullet hitting the ground having already passed through the head.



    Frame 2. Hornady 55gr soft point starts to open up the head. Shockwave starts to dissipate.



    Frame 3. All energy transferred, bits of fur and mud starting to fly around.



    Frame 4. It's all over. Total time taken is 4 frames, camera records at 50 frames per second, so it's quick !



    Hitting with a VMax round, after this there was just a puddle of fur and mush.

    I have never seen photographic evidence of a shock wave like that before. Amazing really.

    It's not dead, it's just resting

    Must admit, I was surprised to see the shockwave when going through frame by frame last night.



    It's cousin/sister/mother/auntie. Exit wound side after being hit by the same ammo, distance @150m. Bang ! Thwock ! Ouch.

    Maybe, but it's a bit gruesome for YouTube, after the hassles I've had with my other shooting videos I'm not sure if it's worth the time. Seems there's loads of people in the world who do nothing but seek out things that offend them, then spend all night complaining - what a sad life to lead.
