Discount Leica CRF Range Finder Tripod Adapter 98750

A couple of weekends ago I was ranging muleys at 1800 yards with mine without a problem ... was laying down prone using my arms as a bipod and occasionally rest on my pack . During windy conditions, it's almost impossible to stabilize and get any readings.

Yep!!! That is the same adapter I have on my Tripod and it works very well.

Either way, sounds like you've got quite a bit more powerful unit than I do. I have got some 1800 and 1900 yd readings, but they've only been on the sides of buildings. I have not been able to get deer at much over 1000 yds.
Leica 1600. Perhaps I got lucky with my unit.
