The Caldwell Ballistic Precision Sight In Target Camera makes zeroing your firearm easier, giving you real-time snapshots of your target and saving time and trips downrange.

The Sight In Target Camera enables you to zero your firearm from up to 440 yards without having to walk back and forth to evaluate your target. After downloading the free app, the unit’s Wi-Fi enabled transmitter streams video and still images of your target to your smart phone or tablet in 720p HD. The app even enables you to calculate shot group size. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery powers the system for 6 hours or you can plug in using the external power jack. The camera and transmitter are encased in waterproof housings, and the zippered storage bag makes the system easy to transport. Cost is $270.

Zeroing a firearm can be quite a chore. You know the drill: Walk downrange to the target, analyze each group of shots, walk back to the bench, make adjustments, shoot again and walk back to the target to verify your results. Clearly, the further you are from the target, the more time and energy is expended. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get a real-time snapshot of your target without having to make so many trips? With the Caldwell Ballistic Precision Sight In Target Camera, you can do just that.

Here’s how it works: First, download the free Caldwell Ballistic Precision Target Camera app to your smart phone or tablet. This will display the Caldwell Target Camera icon on your home screen. But, before connecting the unit to your smart device via Wi-Fi, you’ll need to take a moment to mount the target camera and transmitter.

The Sight In Target Camera’s transmitter creates a wireless network allowing app-equipped smart devices to connect.

Set-up is quick and easy, and it requires only the following: Screw the transmitter to the tripod. Adjust the tripod so that it is level, and use the supplied stake to secure the stand in place, assuming you’re on relatively soft ground. (Be mindful that the unit is not installed in the line of fire.) For optimal connectivity, extend the tripod to its maximum height. Face the front (flat side) of the transmitter toward your designated shooting position. Next, attach the adjustable target camera mount to the desired position on the tripod. Then, plug in the camera’s power connector and COM cable to the transmitter, and switch to either external (12V DC) or internal battery (AC) power. Finally, with Wi-Fi enabled on your smart device, connect to the network designated “Transmitter” followed by a series of numbers. Now, you’re ready to go.

The bottom of the transmitter includes a COM port for connecting the camera, and a power-source selector.

The app enables you to obtain real-time target information that you and anyone standing nearby can see. This makes the experience more inclusive than having someone who has to assist you with a spotting scope. With the Sight In Target Camera, you can also record video or take pictures for later analysis. But the most clever feature has to be the software’s group-size calculator.


To calculate the size of a group, simply designate a known length near the group of shots and select all of the hits you intend to measure. (Pro Tip: Targets with one-inch grids make this a cinch.) Once all the hits are selected, the group size is displayed in the lower right corner of the screen. Hit the Snapshot button to save the image depicting the group.

Not only will the Sight In transmit pictures and video for visual analysis, the app also facilitates remote shot-group-size measurements.

The Sight In Target Camera is fun and a convenient way to zero your firearms out to 440 yards — about the distance where the signal loses strength. Still, this is plenty long for most of us. If you’re a long-range shooter, Caldwell’s Ballistic Precision LR Target Camera ($433) enables you to sight-in at distances up to a mile!
