What kind of range finder are you using? I use the G7 and it works great for me.

I am using a Leica 1600. I can range my target out to 1800 yds with it but I have to have it resting on a shooting bag so it doesn't move at all. I like it because its so small and ranges so well.

Yup, best bang for the buck and they need to be solid. Plus the small beam of the 1600 will return accurate ranges and that's a must at the distances you are shooting now.

I hate to warn you but....... I think I see a Vectronix in your future though.

Keep up the great shooting.
