Does anyone else video record their handload results?

I was testing my handloads the other day, and set my video camera on the tripod to record me shooting. I do this for a couple reasons; to point out problems with myself and if any problems should occur while testing these handloads.

I have not done this, but I see value in it, handloads or not. Watching oneself do anything on video can reveal a lot of useful information.

Sounds too much like work to me. I shoot to have fun, not to over-analyze it and make a job of it.

I just mark the targets with the load data, being them home for later analysis and note taking.

Like the poster above said, I shoot for fun, not a job. I don't need to nit pick myself to death as long as the bullets are going where I want them.

I do the same thing when shooting rifles for groups.

It's more of a safety concern when shooting new loads. so if i were to lose a limb or destroy my gun. also its to observe anything unusual. I have data record sheets, and also mark each target.

I can hardly carry all my stuff to the range anymore, shoot well while I am there, and then pack it all back home and clean it.
Or find enough free time to go shooting in the first place.
(Even though free time is all I have anymore!)

Without adding a video camera and tri-pod to the burden.

Same with smart-phone ballistic tables and down range TV target scanners.
If I can't memorize trajectory tables and wind drift for a rifle & load any longer?
Time to give up shooting and take up basket weaving in a 'home' for the elderly.

I go shooting with loose paper targets, a target stand, and a stapler or masking tape.

And come home to a 3-ring paper punch and loose leaf binder to save the results for future diagnostics of loads, weather, and my mental state that day.

I load. I go with duct tape and paper with sharpie X on it. I blow holes in paper with smile on my face. Then i throw paper in trash and grab a few handfulls of brass. Start over with step 1.

Interesting point you have there. A friend of mine was talking about doing this very same thing and he noticed before every shot he would move his foot. This, he felt, was a cause of him not shooting consistently. You never know if you are in a stressed position and your body makes an adjustment that throws you off a little bit.

I video a lot but not much of anything that has me in it.

I have never done video of testing my reloads, but I do Chrono my new loads, and mark my targets to retrieve the data once at home. I do on the other hand video my IDPA matches, and practice sessions to analyze my performance. For example I replayed my classifier from Sunday, and see the reason I classified as a Sharpsooter instead of a Expert, which I missed by 4sec overall. I can also see if I'm moving properly, and have proper stance will firing. The info I retained from Sunday will be worked on Thursday.

I will video various powders when I'm at an indoor range to see how much muzzle flash each will produce. It's almost startling how different each powder can be.

Nothing like leaving my loved ones something to remember me by, a video of me blowing myself up!

No doubt..It's getting bigger and bigger, the pile of junk I'm bringing to the range.

No, I have a SAG card and can't afford to pay myself scale for a shoot.

I am with rc. At 69 yrs I am after simple, basics. Sight alignment, trigger control. The less mind clutter the better.
