range finders

I'm in the market for a range finder and was wondering what everyone is using. I would also like to hear what everyone thinks is is the best manufacturer of range finders.

Re: range finders

Do some searching under optics forum. There has been plenty of talk about them. Hard to weed through at times. For under a grand I would say the Swaro laserguide 8x30 or the Leica CRF are the two most liked. And now the new Zeiss Victory mono is worth a look too.

Good luck.

Jeff

Re: range finders

How far you ranging? If your new to the forum then your just beginning like I was. I thought that a lieca 1200 was good enough now that I am building a rifle superior to my rangefinder I wish I knew about this forum earlier and found something that reads farther becouse sooner or later 1200 yds is nothing with capabilities of rifles nowa days.

Re: range finders

I had a Leica and thought it worked well until I lost it and bought Swaro. The Swaro is AWESOME.

Re: range finders

Best advice is to over buy like the article says. 1200yrd on the box will range 800. and so on.
