Re: Leica 1200 RF problems
I have ranged many coyotes with the lasers, one comes to mind on an overcast winter day across a huge irrigation flat, 1091 yards for three consecutive readings according to my notes - that was with the Leica 1200. Have also had 1000+ readings on "good" days with the Swarovski, last time we threw dirt on a yote at 1025 with my .300 WSM - bullet hit just under his chest. These situations happened on flat, overcast days and I would not get anywhere near those readings in bright sun, particularly in winter. 5-600 is very doable in winter tho, and that is a long shot on a yote. Have a coyote killing buddy who hunts commercially, he uses his Leica on most shots if he is calling. You do NOT have to range the yote, get some good distance info off rocks, trees, posts or whatever so that you know accurately how far out he is in case there is no time for a laser reading. I actually draw a little sketch, mark in the distances, put the laser away.
