LMAO....I hate the bleeding edge sometimes!
I would like to see pics of your doubler setup Shawn?

I had heard that they were equivalent from posts on other sites when I purchased my Terrapin, but it's good to get confirmation from a familiar and knowledgeable source.

Re: Terrapin PLRF05 or PLRF10

I got a PLRF10 a year or so ago after getting some advice, thanks BROZ

It truely is a fantastic rangefinder.

I discovered a small problem with it a couple of weeks ago though......I wanted to range & shoot past 3000 yards

I couldn't range past 3000 yards but I could shoot that far

So if you want to range past 3000 get the PLR05

I never thought I would need to range past 3000 let alone try to shoot that far.

Gotta love the big 375s

Here is a thread on it, I had little interest here so didn't bother to update it.

375 DCM, 375/408imp

I also have it's little brother the 338 DCM, 300 Berger EH at 3450 fps +

I prefer the 375 though

A few Vids here
