Re: El range

here is what i got today, i'm going to try to do more this weekend, i need a place i can get out a little farther but so far so good. i'm pretty impressed so far. i walked off the distances and used Google earth, so far it's been perfect

this particular sign is pretty hard to range, it's a pretty good test for any range finder to pick it up, i ranged this sign today, about noon, 55 degrees.







next i went to a friends house and went out in the pasture, almost got killed by a damn bull, but then i used said bull to test the binoculars







last i saw an opportunity to range out to a little over 800, 55 degrees across a field to a telephone pole





sorry for the crappy pictures, it was an old point and shoot and i was in a hurry. around 6pm we were ranging telephone poles out to 1240 yards. more to come

Re: El range

here are a few more pictures from my hunt this weekend. i'm probably going to do a side by side with the other rf binoculars in the near future. my biggest challenge was finding an area with the range i needed. i used a tripod for the images, but i use a seated and prone position to shoot some of the longer shots before i tripod mounted the bino's and took the pictures. i didn't get to range any deer because of the wind and full moon, but here is what i got





above are some cows i saw after the morning hunt, i was going from where i was hunting to a pipeline where i could do some serious ranging










this is an electric line pole, i've put my rifle next to one for size reference, it's an off shape, but the nightforce scope on my rifle is 15 inches long, so you've got an idea of size.





this is a fence post i ranged, it's a small target, good distance.





this is the hill behind the fence post i ranged. the reason i did the fence post is because it is a pretty small non reflective target at distance. while i was ranging it, another guy hunting that property walked across this pipe line on that hill and i was able to range him at that yardage. he was walking too fast for me to get the camera set up and i didn't think it was a good idea to try to yell at him to stop while pointing some weird looking thing at him.





these last images are of a tripod stand that had some burlap wraped around it, i couldn't get any closer because it's not on my least, but given it's size i'm confident you could range a deer sized target out to 1400 if you brace yourself. i was hunting alone so i didn't had a partner to act as a target. i'll try to get more pictures when i can. let me know if you have any questions.

Re: El range
