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.

Re: Looking for a good rangefinder.

I looked around and found the papers to the nikon 800 . the bean divergence is Vert 5*- 8* Horz 25*- 36* . they really didn't commit themselves on this spec . I'm not sure if the 1200 would be the same .

5 or 6 years ago I lost the nikon while hunting and replaced it with a bushnell 1500ARC . I looked through the papers for it , and the beam size is not listed . I need a better rangefinder and have been reading all the info I can find .

I too had the bushnell, as well as just about every other rangefinder in the $500-1500 price point. The vectronics beats them all with very little effort.
