    Hi

    Is there unit out there that would enable positioning a GoPro or other camera next to a target and sending the picture/view back to an Ipad some 200 - 500 yards away to permit tracking bullet placement? Clearly needs to be by way of radio signal.

    Thanks

    I use the Capture and Quik apps on an iPad, to link to a GoPro 4. They are free and work fine so long as you dont use the very highest resolution settings in your camera. Wifi range varies on the device though, and i havent tried over that kind of distance.

    Maybe another alternative would be some kind of wifi linked security camera?

    Have a look at IP cameras, something like that should be a suitable alternative if you can find a way of doing it with the GoPro. They're quite cheap aswell.

    but why does the recording stop when it hits the target?

    i hope these are reusable and it would be cool if they work underwater as well.

    The only problem I envisage if home loading is to avoid applying a factory-like crimp.

    That's as good as any Lee Valley new tool design release.
