I'd say no as you cannot see the grid or matrix, inside the boresighter. I have the very same unit and in fact, I own two Bushnells and one BSA. I might not be understanding your question so set me back on course as needed ....

Be Safe !!!

The boresighter is useful. I have not found the $50 ones to be any less effective than the $100 ones, though some may disagree. If I were going to spend more money, I'd get a green one as your eyes can see those better in the daytime.

bore sighters

the Laserlyte comes with a reflective target for daytime use. I set mine on the target frame up in the corner on a small backer, get it set and shoot the sighters on the the grid target at 100 yds(for hipower) or 50 yds(smallbore)
I'm about to use them to set up a handgun in the machine rest to get velocity and accuracy test at the same time without shooting the chrony
