I tested the leica 1200 when I bought my nikon and it was not able to pick up cows at 900 yards I was able to get. If I was infact mesuring the cows.
Sorry I have not tested the Nikon, but I would bet the beam is larger than the Leica.
Were the cows black? Black is the hardest color to get a reading on. Also did you have the unit on sand bags or a rock solid rest? The smaller beam require a more solid rest to hit objects at 900 yards just as does a rifle.
