I have a Leica 1200 scan model, but am only able to range elk sized animals reliably out to about 500 yards with it.........I can get about 8-900 yard readings with it on a Very Large Boulder or tree............but, when I have no great reflective object, from 600 yards on, it is useless...........I want to use my NP-R1 reticle to range these bulls out to 800+ yards, so that is why I need to know the torso size...............anyone have a suggestion on a better rangefinder or more sizes for torsos, I'm all ears. Will the Swarovski 1500 range an elk sized target, using the elk for reflection, out past 800-1000yds?????????

I have used the Leica and the Swarovski side by side for several months, 2 years ago and I kept the Swarovski.. I have ranged Elk with mine at 1800 plus yards...........
