    Thanks jimbo. I used a Teslong rigid iPhone WIFI borescope. You can buy one on Amazon for $98.99. They have several versions. You just load a WIFI camera viewer app (I use Scope View) on your iPhone or Android and connect to the dedicated WIFI signal emitted by the scope. It lets you save pictures and videos of your scope view. I highly recommend it. My buddy and I previously used expensive borescopes and we switched to these. Even though they are inexpensive, they do a great job and are easy to use. I think you will get good use out of it and it is everything you need to keep and eye on your bore. They help you understand what shape your rifle is in and what the effects of your cleaning regimen are. I wouldn't be without it.

    The bullets are caliber specific so you order a kit with bullets for your rifle. They are good bullets (I forget but perhaps they were Sierra Game Kings) and they shoot pretty accurately during the process.

      A borescope ! Sounds like a cheap and maybe quick substitute for a colonoscopy. 🤔 🙃

            Best to get the flexible tipped version if you intend to do your own colonoscopy. I'm on Medicare and they are covered for me, so I got the fixed rod style with which I can easily measure depth of probe into my barrel.

                I’ve only had one new rifle and I’m following a break-in process. My old .35 Whelen didn’t shoot well when I first got it used. It settled down and shot well after about 3 boxes of factory ammo. I suppose the original owner didn’t shoot it much due to recoil. The rest I just shoot because I’m guessing the previous owner either did or didn’t. I have only fired 16 rounds through my 6.5 - .300 Weatherby. Shoots great out of the box.

                  I load 160gr in my 6.5X55 Sweed at about 2400fps. Shot a couple of deer in the Adirondacks and it is spectacular on whitetails. The 6.5X300 could use a heavier bullet if there is room.
                  The light bullets would do good extra long range like speed goats.

                      I like it a lot. I need to set up my rifle vice so I can use both hands on the boresight. Only took a few minutes to set up and get images. It came with 3 mirrors. On Click image for larger version

                        Glad you like it jimbo. I have no idea what the red tip is. Mine didn't have that. I suggest you experiment with screwing the mirror tip out as far as it will go. It makes a big difference in your field of view. Also experiment with the different tips and keep the lens clean. As you saw in a couple of the pictures I posted, my mirror picked up some debris as I was scoping a dirty barrel. It may also help to try several different iPhone apps to see which does the best for you.

                          Thanks. I will try the tips. I use my compputer monitor to view. Instructions say it will work on computer, android but not on iPhone.

                                Going to go to the cleaning bench and do these two rifles and then see the difference. Stay tuned.
                                So far I am getting used to using the scope and the Windows 10 interface with cameras and photos. Not bad but takes a little getting used to.
