Re: g7 vs geovid HD b RF ballistic calculator

Here is a pretty good explanation ot the capabilities. I had the opportunity to look through them , comparing the clarity to my older Geovids. The optical quality was noticablybetter than mine.

Good link, but how does it compensate for height of scope above bore?

My undstsnding from the shooter that had one is that the custom ballistic card program on the Lieca site allows for entries similiar to Shooter. I have not seen it though. You are able to put one load/rifle per card, and the calculation range limit is 1000 yards.

My question about the Lieca is the ability to toggle the RF to distinguish near/far interferences. This is a limititation with my older Geovids. I don't know if the new unit as this feature. My G7 Br2 RF is much more capable of determining accurate ranges under difficult conditions then my Goevids. I also think the 1000 yard calculator limit of the Leica RF is limiting for my needs.IMO.
