Anyone tried these? What are your thoughts? Thinking about getting one to attach to a .300 Win Mag rifle w/ VX-5HD 3-15x44, a .30-06 w/ VX-3i 3-9x50 w/ 30mm tube, and also get the Tactacam attachment for my crossbow.

I've got one. Just practice with it before you go hunting. I have to put mine at a weird angle to account for bolt movement.

Also you have to adjust your parallax to focus the camera, which may differ from your shooting distance. This is a screen grab of a fuzzy video but my scope was crystal clear.

Wow, that's crazy! I hadn't thought about the bolt movement issue... It definitely would get in the way. Thanks!

Overall, are you happy with it? Would you recommend it to other folks? Do you have any cool videos you've taken with it you can share?

I would recommend it. I like having video of my hunts.

I'm happy with it but it's not perfect. My advice is use it at the range and make it so you can view from your phone to get the focus correct. Then shoot a few and watch the video. Make sure you can operate the bolt without issue.

I need to practice with it some more. This is the last video I took.
