    GoPro's and Recoil

    Hey Guys,
    Went turkey shooting the other day to try out the go pro on my shotgun, I found the recoil was causing the camera to tilt forward a bit with each shot even thought I had it super tight.

    What do you guys use to stop this?

    I see there is a product out in the US called recoil keeper whick is a small metal shape that fits in and stops it from tilting, Tried to make mine out of plastic but didn't work and don't feel like spending $35US to get one shipped over.

    Side note: also seems you need to use that little white plug to hold the "slide in" mounts in place, learn that lesson too.

    Example about 19 sec in:

    Theres a roll cage mount with some flexible mounts which should work. Or wear it on your head?

    I quite like it mounted to the gun, then its always level and pointing at the target, Im using one of these mounts with the low Gopro slide in click mount.

    Haha that vid is awesome! Where did you get that mount from?

    Try and squeeze a small serrated lock washer in between the legs

    Do have any in stock??
    I would be interested in using one on a 300 win mag, would it handle the recoil??

    5x mag though on a 300 win mag? Would have thought something like the torrey pines logic eagle eye would be better suited for long range?

    Going to Aussie in a few weeks, maximum range around 150 yds, 5 x magnification would be all I need.

    Fair enough. I would love to give one of those TPL EagleEye's a jam but pricey

    From the Factory

    I haven't personally tried it on anything higher than a 308, but our spec says recoil proof.

    Lets not test that on some uber calibres that exist on the forum though
