    My Vectronix PLRF10 will range anything in most light conditions right up to 3000 yards. I have ranged coyote at a mile, antelope to 2000, and elk to over 2500 yards.

    In moderate snow as far as I could see. And elk through the windshield to 800 yards.

    I had a nikon 800 . it had trouble ranging a caribou at 400 yards . if you want to range every time on fur to 600 yards you need to be looking at ones rated to 1200 or more , preferably more . IMO you can't get one too big . Jim

    The Swaro has better glass than the Leice (thus it works better as a substitute for binoculars), but the Leice 1600 ranges better than the Swaro for less money--at least based on the one I owned. Makes perfect sense as the Leica has a smaller beam divergence.
