On our last trip to the desert we tested our new Bullseye Camera System at 1 mile (1760 yards). We wanted something to help spot misses at distance when the spotter can't see or conditions aren't conducive to spotting misses.
We took out the new swinger target last weekend to give it a test run at 1000 yards while we did our 1 mile shooting trip. We didn't spend a lot of time with the swinger but it seemed to hold up well.

Using scopes with mil reticles on the rifles and spotting scope makes calling corrections fast and easy. Shooting at 500, 1000 yards or 1 mile, as long […]
