A Newcon Optik 1500 would be about 270$ shipped and will range a truck at very close to 1 mile.

It is a little larger unit though than some of the other units mentioned.

Re: Budget rangefinder for 600 yards?

I tried an Newcon once. My particular unit was junk. Fortunately the outfit I bought it from took it back.
I read somewhere that you can expect a rangefinder to give reliable readings out to about 60% of it's rated distance. I have found that to be pretty accurate. Get one rated to at least 1000 yards. And don't buy the cheapest one out there, or you'll have a POS that will only be frustrating. A better buy would be a higher grade of used one.
