Civil War reproduction cannons are just amazing fun to shoot.

What do they look like in slow motion?

See flames, smoke and shock waves with this incredible slow motion footage of cannon fire.

SmarterEveryDay on YouTube shared a video that will blow your mind. It also is quite a blast.
Reproduction cannons like those from back in the Civil War pack quite a lot of punch. They are also a joy to watch. Why not slow down the footage to see every moment of these big guns being fired?
That is exactly what has been done in this great video. Smoke, fire and projectiles are caught in flight. What is even more amazing is the shock waves are also caught too. Now that is absolutely remarkable.
Imagine if a soldier from back then could see this footage? It certainly would be better than any movie ever made in their eyes.
