    Here is a little playing I did today after shooting some other guns. I was using my 338 edge with 300 bergers and nightforce g7 scope and rangefinder.

    I guess it cannot be seen to good. It took me 6 shots to hit the one milk jug.
    1st shot was 4-6" left
    2nd was right at the top but a miss ,
    3rd high
    4th underneath
    5th underneath and 10-12" right
    6th Hit and rolls.

    Then move about 3 feet down and 10 feet left to other jug
    1st over top
    2nd level and right.

    I have not put this away yet, I only had 8 shells. 6 in my stock protector and two in my wyatts.

    Looks to me if you could handle that camera as well as you handle your rifle you could make some real nice ELR Videos.:D.. You must have good eyes because I know at that range I wouldn't be able to even see them milk jugs with my scope on 22x. Nice shooting ......Dave

    Thanks Dave.

    I am trying to get a really good telephoto lens for this camera so that it will pick up the hits better for the computer. All it takes is money, oh and then more money for the next step. Talk to you soon.

    There is no telephoto lens for your camera at any price that will show what you want it to at that range...Even $50k cameras are not going to make clear nice video of milk jugs exploding at 1800 yards. You would have to use 2-3 cameras to capture enough video from your shoot position and the target hits. Editing would be required to splice it all together to make it pleasing to watch. My Cams aren't HD but if you ever want to make one using more Cams let me know and I will help you..... Dave

    Dave, I did buy a doubler and will see. My hopes are low for it but worth a shot. I would be interested in doing some video. I know you have time and I do as well. Maybe we can even get some coyotes or something.

    The doublers help about half of what you think they should. Picture quality suffers the futher you zoom out. The F-stop is also doubled so bright sun is the best time to film... I bought the best glass I could when I got one for my gl2 and I was pretty disappointed.... You need to stay in the optical zoom range to have any quality in the video... Let me know if you need help we could put the gl2 down on the Target just feet away....Dave

    I recently bought a $199 Sony CRX220 HD camcorder at Walmart. It magnifies to 30X with amazing clarity at any price. I took a video of shooting a small rock at 1477 and it looks like its 100 yards away. I think you'd see the jug pop just fine with that camera, even at 1820 yds.

    I use a JVC Everio camera for fimling ELR. It has 40x optical zoom, and a very nice 100x digital zoom. You can zoom 1000x digital, but the quality is very poor.
    It cost me 300 usd here in Norway, I bet it is way cheaper in the US.

    My worst struggle with this camera, is that when Auto focus is enabled, it reacts to mirage at high zoom, so the picture suddenly goes blurry. When I shift to manual focus, it is mch better, but it is very hard to see when the pic is very crisp in that small LCD screen. But filming hits a 2 km is no problem.

    Here is a video I did, shooting my 338LM at 1953 meters, at a rock face. If there had been a milk jug up there, it would have been easy to see it.

    I have also bough an adapter, so I can film through my spotting scope. I'll link a video of that in here too :)

    The rock is more than 2500 meters away, and the mountain top is more than 3000 meters away.

    I tried to upload my video for comparison, but kept getting a message about some "security token" missing...tried to report that to the administrator, and that message bounced back too....so I give up.
