Re: which budget rangefinder
I'll second the Bushy Arc 1000. I have one too and mine came with not only the bino's but a processing set (rip saw, gut hook and jacknife) that are actually sharp and the bino's are roof prism and not bad. Not Swaro's but not bad.
The range finder handles deer to 650 for me and larger stuff to 900 plus, plus it has a rudementary bullet compensation program built in. It won't do a 338 BDC but it handles the more common calibers including my go to 308.
We were at the range on Sunday sighting at 300 for our NM playtime and my hunting bud had his Leica and the Bushy acquired quicker and ranged right with the Leica, yard for yard, object for object. Had it 3 seasons now and still on the first battery.
