Original Poster said:
"I just want one that gives me simple distance to target taking into account the angle, dont care about ballistics, wind, any of that"

I have the Leica 1600m, but it will not do what you want. It also makes you pick a ballistic profile and then also adjusts for it's internally measured Pressure and Temp.

I know the Nikon Riflehunter 1000 does what you want, but can only reliably range to 600-700yards and has a horrible backlight problem.

I think maybe the new Swaro EL Range bino's will.

I too would like to just have the angle adjusted range and ignore the temp and pressure. My picked the ballistic profile closest to mine but get overly large adjustments, like 40 yards at 700yards on a 60deg day at 3000' and pressure of 27.0. Seems like too much adjustment.

OP also said, "I got the Leupold 1000 with DNA, it wont give you range with angle unless you choose a ballistic program"

First post on 2nd page.

He wants a no frills angle comp rangefinder.

The Leupy 1000i TBR will do exactly what he wants for $399. 1/10 yard readout for bow hunting too and will range game 600-800.

The Leica 1600B will do what he wants (beyond 100 yards) for $799. It will do a lot more too including ranging out past 1000. (the leica 1600 will not do angle comp, you need the B model)


The only other unit I would consider in that price range is the Bushnell 1600.

Re: Another Range Finder Question???

I am trying to understand why you don't just pick a ballistic profile then get the results you want, "horizontal distance".

From Leupold's site:

True Ballistic Range (TBR)
Not only will you have accurate laser range finding capabilities to 1,000 yards, with True Ballistic Range® technology matched to your rifle’s ballistics, you get the ballistics range to the target shown as a holdover point, an MOA adjustment, or the equivalent horizontal distance. The RX™-1000i TBR has Four True Ballistic Range readouts for rifle shooters. MOA: The minutes of angle of elevation to adjust your riflescope for precise zero. HOLD: The number of inches or centimeters to hold over or under aim point on target. MIL: The milliradians of angle of elevation to adjust your riflescope for precise zero. BAS: The equivalent horizontal range for which you should hold for use with your bullet’s ballistics.
