Leica 1600 laser rangefinder question

I have a leica 1200, works great. Just would like some more range. How Is the 1600 working. Trying to decide if the 1600 is worth the extra cost. Thanks

    I did the same, sold my 1200 and bought the 1600. The 1600 ranges better than my 1200 ever did. I've ranged many things out to 1800-1900 yards, my 1200 had trouble reading 1000 somethimes. I did have trouble with the first one I bought the Temperature was'nt reading accurately, took it back to Cabelas and they gave me a new one. I would'nt count on the Ballistics program even though its accurate it only works out to 500yds. Right now Cabelas has a spend $500 get $100 off plus extra points on your purchase. With the $100 saveings an I sold my 1200 for $400 I thought it was well worth the trade up, because I really wanted the Angle Indicator feature, along with temp. Good Luck, Wayne
