You should probably do some research on their products, to get some peoples opinions first.

I second taking a look at the Vectronix terrapin, i ordered one earlier this year and got it for somewhere around $1,800 with their shot show discount......if I add this to the $999 I spent on my swaro and the $450 or so on a Leupold IV, ples the coulple hundred on my first nikon I am getting close to the range of the PLRF-10 ....the only beneficiary is my son, he inherits all of my leftovers.

I used a PLRF-10 that a client had last fall and it was easy to get repetable ranges at over 2400yds.....

I have found the terrapin to be very reliable also, the only drawback is the magnification is a little weak but it works as advertised.

To range things at extream ranges requires a more powerful range finder. Newcon optics of canada makes every flavor of lazer rangefinder you can think of 3000 meter 4000 meter all the way out to 21,000 meter, but the 21,000 range finder is extreamly expencive $29,000.00 the smaller versions are a couple thousand, and in my opionyon worth the money. Another way is to subtend a known demention, the for example the avrage man is 20 inches from sholder to sholder if the redical in your scope is setup in minutes of angle you look and see how many minuts that 20 inchet takes up if it only takes up 2 minuts; 20devided by 2 = 10 x 100=1000 yards if your redical is in mildots 1 mil = 3.5 minutes or 1 meter at 1000 meters. The lazer range finder is quicker and easyer to use but if your scope has a moa or mildot you should do it both ways to double check and sharpe your skill at dementioning the range.
The biggest problem at long range is the wind, you should also get a good wind meater and use it all the time ,even when not shooting to become familyar with the wind and know its value, and how many minuts its worth at a given distance, pratice alot. other wise knowing the range is usless.

I would like a vector 21 type then its all done in one. Models? Models?

See on snipershide sometimes. Hard to find, gone before chance. Why don't I just fly over and pic one up. Customs? 3 levels, ACI, Slope doper, angle in "cheap ranger", sold the Leica, Windtronic 2 is nice don't have to rotate like Kestrel but no RH. Can get BP from GPS. Temp wherever. G7 LRBC - what's the best?

You know what -- who makes a non-flammable smoke grenade that I can throw into the valley between the 2 ridges? Wouldn't that be cool? Arent you far enough away they won't care anyways. Heck with it all breaked up just take a shot into the valley below. They don't care about car doors slamming that far away anyways. Shoot just strap your bullet to your chest. Then everything is all warmed up including you! Oh ya and practice is the best practice. A man needs to never forget that.
