Re: Example on self-spotting with camera and spotting scope

JonnyVang,

Sir.. I'm wondering if you could get some pics or perhaps some video footage together of the target frames and the way they work as I have never seen anything like these before and would like to replicate them for home use here in Australia. Is there a link that I could go to to order or perhaps get plans from either way would be great.

Regards,

Re: Example on self-spotting with camera and spotting scope

Dear JonnyVang,

Nice video. Did you think at installing a MB Defensive Edge style. 3 holes at top, and 3 left, 3 right
Are realy working to spot your own shots.
I shoot a heavy rilfe, 338edge, 300smk at 22x power scope and I'm able to spot all my shots past 200yrds.
I have it the same problem as you, but in the filed it will not work video and shooting in the same time and fallow up shot if needed.
For practice your setup is perfect. I do the same with a sony camera throught the spoting scope or binoculars.

Re: Example on self-spotting with camera and spotting scope

Hi, i have done some more shooting after my last post. I have also developed a new low pressure load with Vithavouri n570 giving me 2890 fps with the 140 grs Berger VLD in 6.5x55.
I have also got a nice norwegian made muzzle brake to my rifle.

Here's a picture of the rifle:

Some more videos:
510 meter:

940 meter on a rainy day (aiming for the stone below the tree:

Re: Example on self-spotting with camera and spotting scope

After a 40 min long walk in the mountains I found this white spot in a hill 1137 yards away that I could shoot at with my 6.5x55. I was aiming in the centre between the white rocks.

YouTube - 6.5x55 at 1040 meter / 1137 yards

Re: Example on self-spotting with camera and spotting scope

Been testing a lightweight setup on my gear with a mini tripod for the spotting scope and a small adapter for using my HTC Desire Z smartphone as camera. The results was quite ok. Not as good as with the Pentax DSLR, but still good enough for its purpose.

Here's a clip shooting a Steel Bison at 470 yards with 308win.

Re: Example on self-spotting with camera and spotting scope

Been testing a couple of other ways to film my shooting.

I found a cheap videocamera with 52x optical zoom that is "good enough" for most of my shooting.

Here is a a video first with this camera and then with a FFP-scope/compact cam combo at approx 900 meters (984 yards)
