SB800 on manual does 1/64000th. I'd look to set up 2 or 3 lights, use a single SB for the pellet and probably a studio head and softbox on the shooter flagged so there's no light spill forward of the muzzle. I have seen images of centre fire captured with a pair of SB800's and the images were tack sharp so I'm hopeful. The mathematics suggests a movement of 0.012 FEET (not inches) during the flash so plan B might involve a .22 which gives about 0.001 feet of movement

I'll test it with a light meter tonight to see what kind of aperture it needs. I've got a couple of f1.4's (50mm and 85mm) but the rest are 2.8 zooms. If the light is close to the muzzle I reckon I'll be good at about f4- 5.6 but I'll have a play later.

Yes, I'll be up the club about 9.
