Re: Bushnell 1500

I noticed with my 1500 arc, that humidity seems to play a role in it's ability to range. In WI it's no better than my Lieca 800. At 12,000 feet with no humidity I was able to range some objects to 1200 yards, and 1000 yards objects very consistantly.

Re: Bushnell 1500

I know first hand that the quality varies on the bushnell 1500.I bought a new one on e bay,and a week after I recieved the rangefinder I got another one from the same sender(by mistake).So I notified the guy,and told him about the mistake,so he said just send one of them back,and he thanked me for being honest and not just keeping the other one.Before I sent one back,I took them both outside and tested them with the same battery,and one outperformed the other by a great deal.One would easily range a tree from 800yds.,the other would not range it after several attempts,the better one would also range a house from 1300 yds.,the other would not.Needless to say,I kept the better one!
