Gun magazines often have pics of bullets right as they're leaving the barrel of firearms. How does one take such a picture? I'm guessing it's not possible with a D70, but has anyone attempted to take a picture like that?

If I were going to attempt it, I would set the camera on its fastest shutter speed, use a long lens (70-200 VR), focus it on the muzzle of the gun, set the self timer, and try to crank off a round right as the shutter opens. What do you guys think?
