Pictured is my rig for videoing shots on game from my scoped rifle. The camera is a Chinese copy of the "Go-Pro" that I bought off an on-line auction site for $9.00. The 1" tube is my "go to" tool for mounting Redfield/ Leopold scope bases.
Downside is no "Zoom", neither does a Go-Pro. This will be installed on my Savage Axis 6.5 Creedmoor....

Be interested to see how long it holds up with muzzle blast and barrel vibirations.

I would use a head band around my hunting cap instead.

I have seen those cams, curious as to how good they are.

I would make an extra mount so that the cam can also be mounted on just about anything anywhere. The screw mount uses the 1/4" threads, a common thread size. I used a large heavy duty spring clamp with a video cam mount added to it.

I hope you test fire it with that contraption on the barrel, i doubt it keeps the same POI as it does without it.

I wouldn't attached anything to the barrel in that manner. Will it not attach to your scope?

I am astounded that anyone would think that I intend to install the camera on a rifle BARREL!
Note: The test rig is mounted on a 1" TUBE.
Most scopes (certainly ALL of mine)have 1" tubes.
Capiche???

FWIW, the Chinese camera comes with a complete set of accessories to mount it on a headband/bicycle handlebars/deer blind shelf/etc.
Using ANY of those requires you to take the time to turn on the camera, then focus on the target and crosshairs before you pull the trigger.
Using a headband mount would mean you would have to REMOVE the headband, then turn on the camera, then reinstall the headband AND make sure the camera is pointed at the same place you are shooting. Sound like a plan?? I think not.
Since the camera uses a miniature SD card, I have no idea how much time it will record if left "on" continuously.
Mounted on the scope, I am guaranteed that the camera and rifle are aimed at the same spot.
The picture shows the camera enclosed in a waterproof case for underwater videoing. The case is removable and a lightweight frame is another of the accessories.
I KNOW that the camera works for taking videos, what I do not know is the effect of recoil. The Creedmoor does not have as much felt recoil as my .243 Winchester.

The recoil is going to eliminate your "kill shot", if that is your intent. It would be much better to mount it on a tripod in your stand (1" PVC with nut glued in). Reach over and turn it on when you get ready. Redirect it as needed.

Redirect as needed?? You have to be kidding. With the camera mounted on my scope, I KNOW that the camera is pointed at the spot that I am going to shoot.
Who is to say that the target will stay in the same spot that the camera has been "redirected" to?? I.E. camera is pointed at spot "A', buck moves to point B before shot.
I do not buy the assertion that that recoil will effect my kill shot.

Well, I guess physics doesn't work in your world. Hell, take a selfie before the shot too. After all, it's not about hunting.

The same camera is listed on Ebay for $24.95. For all of you with a "better' idea, here's your chance to prove me wrong!

If taking a video of a kill shot is NOT about hunting, what is? The comment about a "selfie" ought to get you banned for a month...
