The problem is the words used. The bullet drops away from the barrel line at an increasing rate at the same time that it is rising relative to the ground. It is not an "illusion", it actually rises, because the barrel is pointing upwards. However the high sight line allows you to "observe" the tracer go up then down. If that is what you mean by illusion then I agree.

If you want to throw a cricket ball from the boundary to the keeper you have to throw it at an upward trajectory 30 or 40 degrees elevation. If you throw it horizontally it will hit the ground within yards.
