Re: good range finder

A question for those with some practical experience with available range finders. Will any one of them work on a ground-hog or a 7 inch by 11 inch target in a alfalfa field at ranges of say 250 to 400 yards. I have a Tasco which has troble with a barn at over 250 yards (it could be defective).

Thanks for any info.
Bill C.

Re: good range finder

Mike

I have a friend that bought one and has had nothing but grief with it.

He does not speak well about it. I see Len has had success with his. I think Len is one of the few I have heard that has had success.
I received a call from the company back a year or two ago. They wanted me to test the unit and send in the report of what I found.
I told them I would and that I would test it in the sunlight, shade, misty rain, slight snow and different temperatures and write truthfully about my findings.
THEY NEVER SENT ME ONE FOR TESTING.

The Military (much more powerful) units are what I use because of the extended range they will work at in ANY weather and sunlight changes during the day or week.

To answer the other poster about the field ranging at 250 to 350 yds on chucks or whatever---The answer is yes, the Military laser units will do it all day long accuratly.

They are worth the $3000.00 to $3500.00 spent on them when you can find one.

Later

Darryl,
Where do you find them or look for them?
