[QUOTE=royinidaho;713367] Get those bipod feet off of the mat and onto the ground.!!!! Or Broz is gonna come down there and hutch. [QUOTE]

I saw that Roy. Anyone that does not believe it I invite to shoot two groups at 300 or 500 yards. One with all the padding under the bipod and rear bag and one with the pod securely dug in and the rear bag solid on the ground. It was huge with my groups.

MD, great video and great shooting to all of you. That is a long ways and having done it many times I know what it takes. Good job.

Thanks SidecarFlip.

Hey, I'm looking to rebarrel / brake my .338. Got any suggestions on barrels?

Re: 2300 Yds. A Very Humbling Experience.

Where'd that word "hutch" come from. I'm confident I typed "hurtchcah. Hey, I just did and it automatically changed to "hutch". Wow! another modern day feature.

Again, great video quality and editing.

The whip on your rifle I mentioned: it appears to whip like a wet noodle.

ALso, I'm interested!! big time in the wireless equipment i.e, Rx/Tx/antenna models etc.

I'm mostly a rock shooter and video the shots but want to move towards accurate portrayal at ELR.

I've been researching wireless equipment for quite awhile and am about to bite the bullet and desire to not bite the wrong one.

Roy,

There are a few Target Camera Systems available. You can use Google to get
started. Here's a link to a ready to go system:
*target-sight - Target Camera

This is good out to 1000 yds. The company owner had suggested an additional antenna that would get me more distance. However, after doing more research, it turned out that the antenna that he suggested wasn't the best choice.

His was an 8" squared antenna that over a period of extreme distance speads
too much. So I went with the antenna you see in the pics I posted of my setup. It has a much more narrow/direct signal that stays strong out to 2+ miles I'm told.

Anyway, I based my system off the target sight setup except my T/R
(Transmitter/Receiver) is analog not digital. There's a slight delay in digital. Very slight but a little.

I had some of the other components like my Panasonic Camcorder HDC-SD60 (35x zoom), a tripod and a monitor. I did some research and found a place here in Las Vegas, NV that actually sells the guy the parts he puts the system together with. Crazy huh!

Anyway, the T/R cost me $269.00, Batteries and charger for the T/A $120.00.
I used a couple of C-Stands to put the two shelves that hold both T/A and get them up 10' in the air for a stronger/clearer signal.

If you need any other info, let me know. Good luck.

Mark

Mark,

Thanks for the details.

Though I've removed "tinkeritus" from my reloading and shooting it still lingers in a major way with data. Delay between digital and analog? Hmmmmmm.

What I want to add to the visibility of hits etc is a time measurement from muzzle to target. A piezo impact sensor at the target with the impact spike sent back to a processor compared to the muzzle exit time should provide interesting information. An Arduino/Phidget or some other processor would do the job. At 1K and beyond millisecond measurement may well be good enough. Microsec would be better.

Again thanks for the info.
