G7BR2 or Leica 1600

I understand that this has been discussed but I am looking for info based on actual field use. I am looking for one that will range out to 1800 or further consistantly but do not require the ballistic program in the g7(although it Might come in handy). What are some ranges you guys have gotten in field conditions on animals and/or trees? Which would you buy?

Thanks, Mike

I think that if you are needing to range 1800 yards consistently, you will need something more than the BR2 or Leica 1600. You will probably need to get a Vectronix.

That's what I thought. What about 1800 in good conditions?

Vectronix Terrapin is the solution, buy once and range what you want to range when you want to range it. I've gotten the Leica 1600 out to just under 2000 yards but it was better than ideal conditions, 1600 is pushing it in normal use.

This is spot on. I own a Vectronix PLRF10 but would now buy a Vectronix PLRF05 (Terripin) if I were to need another long range unit.
