    Just like the title says; Is there such a thing as an economy bore scope that is even marginally functional?

    I want to find some way of examining my barrel, or at least throat, without spending several hundred dollars.

    Can anyone recommend a piece of equipment that will let me do this?

    I use my Cannon Power Shot.

    It is tricky to get the right area in focus but possible.

    after trying many economy bore scopes the conclusion I have come to is the Lyman is as good as it's going to get for a little bit. I still spent less than a Hawkeye much less a Hawkeye with a camera.

    the screen is not so hot but it let me see the gator skin of a worked over 338/378. None of the others show it.
