My Leupold is worse than that.

Leupold Range finder Not accurate
I have a Leupold RX 600 range finder and it is way off.
100 yds, it is reading 92.4 yds.
200 184.8
300 273.2
400 369.6
500 462
483 is as far as it will range.

Dood, it is reading in meters, is there a switch or way to change it to yards?

If it was me, I'd call Leupold and arrange to send it back. As a rule (in my experience, they stand behind everything 100%).....

I like the looks (but not the price) of the new G7 Rangefinder.

For a couple hundred more, the BORS system is obtainable.

Re: Best rangefinder??????

Bought a Bushnell Elite 1500 and couldn't get it to range ANYTHING that was NOT reflective past 300-400yds. I ONCE got a reading of 1000+ on the side of a semi truck's trailer. Got tired of not being able to range anything that didn't have a mirror finish on it, so I bought the Swaro Laserguide. This unit I have only had since this past Christmas, but I have already ranged large flat rocks at over 1700yds. It is no problem to range trees out to 1000+ on sunny days. IMO cry once and buy the Swaro.

Personally, I can't warm up to anything that ends in 'Optik'
