    Is that a cloud of smoke from firing the rifle with the early not fully smokeless powder, and if so, it seems may be the firing in damp weather/air. Or is the cloud from something else??

    I wondered that myself. It appears to be emanating from the ground??? Whatever it is that shutter's timing was right on!

    I think it's a dust cloud.

    I notice that it is in line with the muzzle. I wonder whether it is a dry day and the shock wave from the muzzle is kicking up a cloud of dust?

    Dust blown up by the muzzle blast and gas from the gas piston is my guess.
