    Pretty cool. Strange how the gas bubbles expend and then Shrink to nothing without bubbles ever going to the surface. I would assume that means that what ever the gasses are are highly water soluble?

    I think what you are seeing is the water vaporizing in the low pressure area behind the bullet. You can boil water at room temp under a vacuum, so it is vaporizing then once the low pressure equalizes it returns to a solid. Just a guess though.

    I didn't know that sharks could live in swimming pools.
    I'd a shot the thing too, getting all uppity like that in my cement pond and all.

    Guns under water don't work too good

    Actually, that's cavitation, partially filled with gasses from the powder. I'm willing to bet it's mostly vacuum.

    Which is why there are so few bubbles.

    The ultimate Suppression system . A swimming Pool .

    thing also, is that when you add an artificial wet environment to the inside of dry Suppressor . Sound dB level also goes Way Down when trapping expanding muzzle gases .

    Elsie I was racking my brain trying to think of that word(cavitation) and it just would not come to me. Hell getting old. Lol MJB, not that big a brain obviously.

    It's also REALLY REALLY HOT air, so once it cools it collapses and shrinks much by volume.
