SCOPE CAM: 400 Yard AR15 Target Shooting

Shooting an AR15 using the scope cam; targets setup at approximately 410 yards. The camcorder is securely mounted to the stock of the rifle, just behind the charging handle. Shooting with this setup is quite a challenge, as I have to use the camcorder viewfinder for aiming. The viewfinder screen is roughly the size of 4 small postage stamps, and provides nowhere near the quality resolution that you experience with a decent scope. I’m so close to the viewfinder, I’m not even wearing my glasses. Rifle for the session is a Bushmaster Varminter in .223, topped off with a Leupold Mark III scope. The Remington 55 grain accutip is the load of choice.
