Re: bushnell 1600 rangefinder

My bushnell 1000 yard ones have never been reliable in the cold. I always had to keep
them inside my shirt which is not comfortable. Down to 25 degrees was the highest temp
they failed at. Under 10 degrees they never worked. I would be interested to see if
the newer products are any different.

Yes, and the FACTORY states clearly that the limit on deer may only be 500 yards!
I suppose if you shoot trucks or grain elevators the numbers may be better

You may very well do better, but the FACTORY says 500 yards, and that is considerably less than 1,000... I don't have enough fingers and toes to tell you exactly how much less but it is a bunch

edge.
