1 mile -- i built a cam scope that I works at 1 mile
I can go farther if i wanted too but there is really no need too
here are pics of 600 yards that i was shooting. the images were saved thru my cam and software
the images you see is what i see at the line
clarity doesn't change at all the farther the target is
How much will you sell me one for?

Probably not if it has enough oomph to transmit that far. Possible... but not probable.
here is a video i made with 1 mile spoting scope

OK, so let me get this straight..... I can set at the gun and push refresh between shots (ONE click) and have a running tally of my shots?
I don't care about FCC licensing requirements
YEP that is how I use it. It really helps to know where each round landed and in what order.

Help a brotha out here...
try securitycam.com click transmitters. might be a cheaper alternative. 5000 ft sounds far enough.
At a 1000 yd match in Tucson about 10 or 15 years ago one of the local astronomy shops brough a bunch of his big scopes out to the range. He got to shoot a bunch of our guns and we got to play with a bunch of his expensive scopes. But none of them, including a big 10" or 12" Celestron mirror scope with eyepieces up to (if I remember right) the 40x, 60x and 80x range would resolve .30 caliber holes in the blue target face. Some of the guys could read the black scoring numbers in the white rings, but none of us could see bullet holes. However you could really seriously see the mirage when running the focal length back and forth along the 500 to 1000 yard range.
It is not just the telescope and how good the optics are or how much magnification there is he mirage or as optical scientists call it turbulence is a limiting factor on how small an object you can see at a given distance. Think about this, when the mirage is running heavy you may have a hard time seeing the X-ring much less a bullet hole. The limit on seeing bullet hole-sized objects at sea level is somewhere around 600-800 yards. That is why sometimes you can see holes in the target at 600 in the AM but as soon as the sun hits the ground and starts to heat up you no longer can.
If you see an ad for a scope that says it will eliminate the mirage run away fast as they are trying to seel you a load a crap, there are ways of reducing its effects but nothing that will currently fit into a rifle scope.
I could go into excruciating detail about the process and ways of mitigating it but would bore and annoy everyone, suffice it to say that the limiting factor in seeing bullet holes at ranges beyond 600 yards is the atmosphere and not necessarily the optics.
For practice only, why don't you try to duplicate the MR-1FC with white background and black rings. 3" X-ring, 6" 10-ring. 12" 9-ring. You could almost get that on a piece of 8"x11" paper... should need any more than 6" anyway... right?
