Ditto...

Put an MOA correction on that dude's read out, and I'll buy one.

Great idea and product you have there Arron, but if it doesn't spit out MOA, then it's useless to me and a lot of other folks. Have hashed all through this in various BDC vs non-BDC turret threads. BDC is great for some but not others. Speaking for myself, I'm a natural born tinkerer who loves to try out new bullets and powders, etc. I also switch out my scopes now and then and for these and other reasons, the BDC just does not work for me.

Are you making a non-BDC version, and if not, I'm wondering why? Seems to me the programming would be simpler as mentioned by BMcKell.

Don't forget that this RF replaces your angle indicator, your field computer and weather station. I think it's worth the price if it performs as advertised... and... they put out an MOA version.

The reason they won't make an MOA version is because it would make their turret obsolete. Their business revolves around that turret and without it they would just be selling rangefinders.

FOR MOA USERS:

It returns the air density and angle corrected shooting distance. You use this distance, look up the MOA on your chart, turn the dial on your MOA turret to the correct MOA, shoot.

That's what it looks like from where I'm stting... An LRF that spit out MOA corrections would make BDC turrets obsolete. I asked this very same question last year when they first started talking about this LRF and never got an answer.

We'll see what Aaron has to say.

If they don't want to fill this market gap, I'm sure there will be some other enterprising folks that will and then they will have both an obsolete scope and LRF.

Len, I can buy a Leica 1600 that gives me angle, PA and temp for $750 and it is very compact. It will give me fairly accurate corrections out to 500 yds or so. Why would I want to buy this for $1500, especially when there a chance the real deal will show up in a year or two making my $1500 investment obsolete?

Better question... why won't Aaron and company just get it right now?

I'll hold on to my $$$ until what I need becomes available.

The Leica CRF1600 spits out your temp, barometric pressure, and angle of inclination/declanation... it also has the smallest beam divergence in its class and ranges to 1500+ yards in midday sun on trees and grass etc... All for $750.

What worries me about this rangefinder is LaserTech are subcontracted for engineering the instrument side of it. So far they produce many units of thier own brand mainly for use in the forestry/construction industry, and also produce all the instrumentation used in Bushnell rangefinders. Their beam divergence 2x3 milrad and typically range out to 1000yds on non-reflective targets reliably...The beam divergence isnt good enough IMHO, to be relied upon in certain HUNTING scenarios... Hopefully, and i really do hope, they have specified something better than what they normally use, which might explain the increased price... - although the smaller volumes make this unlikely...
