I remembered this old article in a field and stream took a while to find it in the net but i think its a good short read for the members trying to figure out problems they may be having getting it on target.

This lil $35 barrel fan cuts cool down time in half.  If you have a temp gage ( kestrel, phone, thermometer). Just check air temp coming out of barrel til reaches desired temp and shoot.

The camera has bluetooth built in?  What kind of range can you get from the camera to the phone?

Yes, Bluetooth and WiFi so you can control the camera and view the video from your phone. I can get about 20' away before it drops the Bluetooth connection. I've connected a laptop or Ipad to it as well so my spotter could watch on a larger screen while we recorded. It's a pretty neat setup.

They're a great deal right now since you can find the Hero4 so cheap. I paid $399 for mine but I still feel like it was well worth it.

The housings are pretty durable. I've attached mine to a hone built housing and used it to video salmon strikes. I've sent it down in the crab pot. Lately, I got it to close to the steel recording impacts. Camera is fine.

That should work great!

If you have a spare tripod you can mount the camera on a tripod behind the spotter and it works alright. I tried that for a while and it worked but it's not nearly as easy as using the right PhoneSkope adapter on the spotter.

I got a question , when you free float a barrel, from the barrel nut,or from the receiver on ,free .free float to the front recoil lug.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

TIP: Your seating depth ogive measurement tool will wear and throw off your measurements. Mine changed .007 in two weeks.  Your next lot of bullets may be off length or ogive location. Write down oal and ogive each load.  If you find a great load save a reference round. Its no fun to find a great that you dont know how to duplicate.
