    Simple, inexpensive camera powder check

    Not my idea but it's a good one so I stole it. Cheap Amazon bore scope $19 that plugs into your android phone or tablet some zip ties and viola!!! Clear look into my 223 cases to confirm powder charge no more having to bend over the press and squint my eyes when the lighting isn't just right. And as a bonus I can move it over to my pistol press and check the long 38spc cases when loaded with Titegroup that takes up so little space in a case. Yay me!!!!

    I think you hit on something that just may catch on.

    For 20 bucks I figured if it didnt work out I would still have a little bore scope for other things but so far so good. My biggest problem was Me over thinking the mounting of the borescope. I was thinking brackets and clips and whatnot until I realized "hey dummy" its semi rigid and flexible and holds whatever bend you put in it.....zip ties and bend to where I need it.

    I like this. My press now sits up high enough that itís difficult for me to see in the case.

    a poor plan that is well executed will produce better results that a good plan that is poorly executed.

    Yeah its working very well and for the price cant be beat. Helps that I have that older tab I wasn't using but a lot of folks have an older unused phone in a drawer that would work as well.

    I have an extra phone that I donít use. I didnít even think about that. Glad you mentioned it!
