A .22 caliber bullet is fired from a rifle.  The schlieren optical system images different air pressures with different colors of light.  The lack of a bow wave in front of the bullets shows that the bullet is moving slower than the speed of sound.  This image freezes the motion by using a high speed flash with a duration of  1/2,000,000th of a second.  .
