Overview

The system transmits video of your shots in real time, letting you make corrections without having to leave your shooting position.

The Bullseye AmmoCam camera system is a easy and fun way to see your target without having to walk downrange. The system transmits video of your shots in real time, letting you make corrections without having to leave your shooting position. You can even mark your shots in order so that you can see how your groups shape up.

To set up the Bullseye AmmoCam target camera you just place the camera unitbetween 8 and 15 feet back from the target. This puts it at a safe distance from the target, minimizing the risk damage from gunshots or ricochets. The AmmoCam has a built-in stand that you can use to position the camera and angle it to the right height to see just about any kind of target.

The AmmoCam comes in two versions, the Long Range Edition and the Sight-In model. The Long Range Edition has an incredible 1-mile range, while the Sight-In version works to a still-respectable 300 yards. The receiver connects to any iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire/HD, Android Device or Windows machine running Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10.

The Long Range Edition is ideal for shooting at any range out to one mile.

A handy tilt stand in included.

It’s also fully weatherproofed for the dedicated shooter and runs off a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack. Each charge should provide at least 12 hours of runtime.

The system generates its own wireless hotspot so you don’t need an Internet or data connection. The software to support these devices is provided free from bull’s-eye camera systems with no monthly fees or software upgrade charges.

Impressions

The software is simply amazing and the demo I saw allowed you to correct for any angle that the camera might be to the target. It zoomed in nicely without becoming grainy.

Called the Bullseye Target Manager, the software can track multiple shooters using the same target. The program lets you use color codes and numbers to track each shooter’s performance downrange. This, mind you, is on any type of target you can imagine; commercial, hand drawn, piece of plywood — anything that you can drill a hole through will work!

The software even allowed you to measure your group size projected grid on to your target. Other great features include measuring and recording your shooting results. And you can easily save multiple range sessions.

In addition to this being a great teaching and training tool and it has games that you could play while shooting at targets. The AmmoCam is also be a great way to introduce a new shooter to our sport.

Pricing and Availability

Considering that the Bullseye camera system can do so much more than your standard spotting scope, it’s a surprise how affordable these systems are. The shorter-range Sight-In Edition has a suggested retail price of $349. The Long Range Edition is $649. Both systems are available now.

    Yeah, I definitely want one of these things. I want the “up to 1 mile” version, but it’s so much more expensive. I want to shoot out to about 600, maybe 800 yards. But the price jump is really steep. I’m conniving how I might be able to get the cheaper model to talk longer distance affordably. Love this idea SO much better than dropping $2500 for a good target lens, especially with the cool software!

    Notice the reviewer has the target in the shade. When my target has the sun shining on it the picture is overexposed. Even with a black target. It needs a way to reduce bright light.

    Speaking of black targets. The HD camera in the current system is an upgrade from the legacy system I had. Now I can view .22 caliber bullet holes in the black area.

    Wonder if its insured at one mile for when you blow it up with a drop shot?

      Actually, yes. The website shows this:

      We are the ONLY TARGET CAMERA COMPANY to offer a Bulletproof Warranty! For ONLY $29.95, you can protect your Bullseye AmmoCam against anything that happens to it for 2 years, including being hit by a bullet!

    Been looking at getting one for awhile now.

    The price for the low-end model seems reasonable. Were you to build one yourself, you’d need a webcam, a battery, a case, etc., all of which would add up to a few hundred USD before you’ve even done any labor. On the other hand, I’d like to see some camera specs and an actual image from the camera, not just pics and video of the product in use. The higher-end models don’t seem like such a good value. Many webcams have antenna jacks, so wiring up an external antenna simply requires cabling and connectors. Another play would be to use a Ubiquiti Bullet with an ethernet-only webcam.

      I was thinking about the same thing…”dam why didn’t I think of this” even. But as I read along, I realized this is more than just a cheap camera, transmitter and ammo box. The software they use that makes it a higher end product for “shooter convenience” is something beyond my personal skill set and abilities. Certainly a brilliant idea and well executed in my opinion.

    I’ll admit that I wanted to “hate” this thing immediately. But after reading the article (twice), I’ve warmed up to the idea a little and am actually considering purchasing one. I can already think of a couple of off-range uses for it too.
