A video shot in super slow motion of a bullet hitting a steel plate, the bullet scattering like fireworks

The Slow Mo Guys , who have shot many slow motion videos, have released a video of ``a bullet hitting a steel plate'' using the latest high-speed camera.

Bullets vs Steel at 800,000 FPS - The Slow Mo Guys - YouTube

In 2009, a slow-motion video of a bullet hitting a steel plate was released. Although it was a monochrome video, it was shot in super slow motion at 1 million frames per second, which was rare at the time, and the video has become so popular that it has been viewed more than 15 million times at the time of writing. The Slow Mo Guys, who were inspired by this video, used the latest high-speed camera, the Phantom TMX 7510 , to film ``a bullet hitting a steel plate'' in full color.

First, we used a standard

9x19mm Parabellum bullet to shoot an aluminum baking tray.

When shooting a normal video, a hole instantly appeared in the baking tray.

This situation was also photographed with Phantom TMX 7510.

First, a slow motion video shot at 82,000fps. The situation just before the bullet hits the tray.

The tray absorbs the bullet as if it were liquid.

A beautiful circular hole was created, and ripples spread around the hole on the tray. Looking at this scene, The Slow Mo Guys said, ``It's like water spraying in a pond!''

Looking up, the moment the bullet penetrates the tray is as follows.

Below is a slow motion video of the backside of the tray at 400,000 fps. The tray will swell up.

The warhead popped out.

In the place where the bullet came out, the tray is deformed like a milk crown.

Next, shoot a 9x19mm parabellum bullet into a 0.5 inch (about 1.27 cm) thick iron plate.

Bullet marks were left where the bullets struck.

The moment of the collision was captured in slow motion video at 82,000 fps. The bullet hits the steel plate and explodes, scattering cleanly like fireworks.

The Slow Mo Guys also expressed surprise, saying, 'It's just broken pieces!'

Sparks were produced when the bullet hit the steel plate.

If you look closely at the tip of the bullet, there are six notches, and it appears that sparks are leaking from these gaps.

Next is a slow motion video shot at 400,000 fps.

The bullet collided with the steel plate.


As the bullet shatters, fragments fly off like fireworks.

A monochrome slow motion video shot at 800,000 fps looks like this.

Slow motion video shot at 120,000 fps. The appearance of a bullet breaking as it sinks into a steel plate.


It appears that what appears to be the bottom of the warhead bounces off the impact area.

Next, shoot a full metal jacket bullet with a longer bullet with a rifle.

Then, it successfully penetrated the steel plate that was defying the 9x19mm Parabellum bullet.

What's more, a penetrating rifle bullet happened to hit an aluminum billboard that happened to be behind me. However, it seems that it did not have the power to penetrate this signboard.

The way a rifle bullet penetrates the iron plate is as follows. The moment the bullet landed.

A large plume of smoke erupted in front of us.

A large amount of metal pieces will fly out.

After that, metal pieces were scattered from behind the iron plate.

If you look close up, you can see sparks occurring at the moment of impact.

Upon impact, a large amount of smoke was generated and the warhead was no longer visible.

A large amount of metal pieces will fly out.

The moment you shoot with a rifle.

The speed of a rifle bullet before it hits the steel plate is about 885 meters per second.

Collision with iron plate.

The speed of the bullet decreases rapidly as it sinks into the iron plate.

When the speed drops to 145 meters per second, the back side of the iron plate begins to swell.


The velocity of the bullet did not fall below 145 meters per second.

Observe the iron plate from the back side.

The back side of the impact area will swell up.


Part of the warhead is shown by the arrow.

Shoot even thicker iron plates.

The steel plate collapsed due to the impact of the bullet.

Check the moment of impact at 125,000 fps.

Even full metal jacket bullets rupture on the iron plate surface.

Black smoke spreads out in a circle.

It can be seen that part of the warhead remains at the impact point.

This is what it looks like when you look up.

Sparks fly at the moment of impact.

Black smoke spreads, making it almost impossible to see what the warhead is like.

It can be confirmed that a portion of the warhead remains at the impact point.

As the smoke spread, fragments of the warhead could be seen in the smoke.
