ba19500,
Sounds like yours isn't reading to it's full potential. Send it back, my 7 year old Bushnell 800 will do better then that and it has been used a bagillion times!

    The Swaro is considered the best civilian rangefinder under $1000

    I haven't used it much this month so I went out again this morning and it was really erratic. The voltmeter said to replace the battery so if that doesn't work I'll send it back. Thanks.

    Leica are some of the best you can get. For the price and the quality I have been happy with the Leupold. They will not do 1k but they will do 700yds. Iím going to be testing out the Leupold RXB in a few weeks.

    After playing around with my Lica 1200 crf for a few mounths I would say it's pretty reliable to around 5-600 yrds on crtitters. Anything beyond that is pretty hit and miss unless it's a water tower or somthing. I was expecting more. If I get another it will be the Swro.

    Have any of you tried the NEWCON LRM2000PRO, made in canada. I just bought one and steped out of the truck and rested on the hood and ranged a tree at1076yds, i pulled of the side of the hiway and ranged a big sign at a gas station at 1700yds. Havent had the chanch to realy test it on game, but i bet it will do the trick. Can`t remember the exact amount i paid--but it was around 500 bucks!!!
