    Very interesting showing how inefficient they are, can see unlit powder thrown out of the muzzle.

    Very interesting video. :)
    The only thing that looked very inefficient to me was all of the flaming powder gas that blew past the ball before the ball left the muzzle.

    No doubt about it though, these things are serious weapons.

    Great vid, I enjoyed and was grinning all the way through. Could have done without the paid commercial though.

    It doesn't work for the first ad (which you can usually skip after five seconds), but I've been told that when there are ads in the middle of a video (they can be spotted by looking for yellow marks in the progress bar), you can skip them by dragging the scroll arrow all of the way to the end, then hitting replay.

    You Tube doesn't provide the videos out of the goodness of their heart and someone has to pay for it.
    That's why I don't mind the few ad's they show (although I always click them off as soon as I can.)

    That was well worth watching. Those cameras he used are really something.

    That's why I can't attest first hand to the above method for skipping ads.

    Of course, t'other way to do it would be to pay for their premium service.

    Following up on that YT movie, here is the story of Joseph Whitworth and his measuring machine that gave us a way to measure with a totally new level of precision - AND some epic movie of a 3 pounder Whitworth rifle in action in slow-motion. Great stuff, eh? There is also a quick look at a WoNA Whitworth rifle complete with its Colonel Davidson scope in the Tennessee Museum of the Civil War.....dribble........
