Slow motion footage shows us the hidden world of how fired projectiles behave.

The Slow Mo Guys have the gear and know how to get great footage.

Witness a bullet getting split incredibly into 8 pieces all caught in slow motion.

Ever hear of splitting a bullet? Usually a soft lead round ball from a muzzleloader would target an ax head. That bullet would then split (hopefully) and hit two targets then. That trick shot is an old favorite.

How about raising the bar on that trick shot and recording it all on a slow motion video? Can a bullet be split into eight pieces? Well The Slow Mo Guys on YouTube made it all happen.

Sit back and watch the incredible footage of how you have never witnessed a fired projectile behave before. Best thing is the footage is caught at different angles to get the full detail of this awesome experiment.
