Animals at 800 yds on flat ground was a very tricky business and rarely ever worked out. I just sold it for 300.00
Mine was a bit better than yours. 1415 yards was max under best of conditions. We have very little flat ground, where the elk and deer are, but was a tough go on the flat sage brush for yotes.
I concur on your 800 yd assessment. There were times even on steep mountain sides that it wouldn't do even that. Never less than nearly 700 though.
