I've been going through and editing the video clips from my last squirrel hunt, and came across this one. In the original clip, at full resolution, you can see the pellet in flight as it heads for a spot on the squirrels head, that is between the eye and the ear hole. Unfortunately, the resolution in the compressed version isn't high enough to see the pellet, so I've grabbed a couple of stills out of the video that show the base of the pellet just before impacting the squirrel, and the frame right at impact.View video here: http://www.youtube.c...feature=channel Look at the right side of the squirrels eye, and you can see the round silver base of the pellet in flight.Posted ImageMoment of impact.Posted Image

Does your camera have a remote? If you could set your camera up by their hole, say within 3 or 4 feet, then fire at it from 30 yards back. The timing would have to be perfect along with camera angle, etc., but to show a clear closeup on impact would be a first here. Easy for me to say. I have a hard enough time hitting these things without involving a camera. :signlol2iu:

These Youtube videos are low quality. If you watch Cliff's DVD the video is crystal clear.http://www.californi...?showtopic=9239

I like it so much that I put a custom stock on it. The little rifle is amazing. I have one in both calibers and they shoot right along with some of my high dollar guns. Mac1 is the way to go.

The video quality is there in the originals, but when the clips get compressed, so the file size isn't HUGE, for use on the Web, the resolution goes to pot. For example, a 10 meg video file may be compressed down to a 1 meg file. Lots of detail is lost in the process. It just is what it is. I try to choose video clips that will still show reasonably well, even with the high compression rate.

I did the same thing. I figured after about the fourth time I shot it, it would duck on the next one. Nope, it let me shoot it three more times, and then I decided it must really be dumb. :carnage:
