Question Bullseyecam Sight In

I don't know if this has been addressed much, but my wife bought me an early birthday present. A Bullseye sight in cam. This is different then if I purchased it for me, I would have researched very carefully. Does anyone here have experience with this box, or should I rip the guts out of it and store 7.62 in it.

If it is this system it looks like a good product. I was looking into buying one myself but am balking at the price. I wish my wife would buy one for me. http://www.bullseyecamera.com/bcs_ammocam.html

I have one. It's the long range edition. Not as compact as Yours.
What would you like to know?

Dutch. Do you like it because I have the long distance version on my list to buy?
Any negatives you don't like?

If you plan to shoot past 500 yards I strongly suggest you get the option with the long range antenna. I had to jury rig my own antenna because I bought the long range edition without the antenna. Mine works wonderfully.
The program is a good one but keeping the pictures of sessions, with the loads recorded while shooting them, is a bit tricky. If you are ok with computers, it's not a bad thing, just something to get used to.
A word of advice, label your sessions by powder type and Grain to make it easier to open the pictures that represent the groups.

My dad loves it because his eyes are older and with the camera, spotting for him, and him for me, is now is a breeze. You can paint your targets any color you want... I shoot steel...making sure the steel is angled to not wreck the camera from a ricochet.

I dropped the camera once, the glass lenses broke, they sent me a new lease after I told them what happened. Good service indeed.

Negatives: get an extra power bank...the one that comes with it, after 4 hrs, will become dead. The program takes a bit to get used to...but thats like getting a new phone. Description should be labeled by powder and charge weight to find the pictures.

Other than that, it works great.

Pros: you can take snap shots of each impact...makes it really easy to see what your trigger work looks like on the target. Makes it easier to call shots once you get used to what your finger does....a good teaching device.

Thanks from scea

I have the long range edition of it, in the 50cal plastic ammo box. I mounted my box in a battery box (due to rain here in the NW) and then on a standard camera tripod. I love it, and it works great. I can monitor it with either the smart phone, or a tablet. It is really neat how you are able to see a string of shots. Great tool, and a great company. Customer support is A+.
