Re: Leica 1200 effectiveness
I routinely got lopes at 800+ yds in WY this year. Some backgrounds and long flat ranging without a little bit of elevation can confuse most any rangefinder,..as the beam gets wider, it will find a weed or bush in between you and the target,.and you will get a reading that you KNOW is false. The leica I have is better than other products I have used (other than the Geovid).
You try to get closer to the target,..and I keep trying to get further away.
