Leica 1600

I just got a new leica 1600 and this week at the ranch i could only get 800 out of it on a side of a mountain only 600 on mule deer. Not to happy with it for 1600 it should be a lot better than this. i tried hills that i know where only around a 1000-1200 and never got a reading
what do y'all think i got a bad one

Re: Leica 1600

I have only tried mine a little ,but ranged a tree at 1540 yards, hillside at 1,100 yards, easily hit rocks at way past 1000 yards, sounds like your's has a issue. Are you sure the battery is good?

Re: Leica 1600

I have about 4 friends that got bad ones last and early this year. One is on #3, BUT THAT ONE IS WORKING like a champ, my 1200 cant keep up with it, when I am having trouble in mountains at 1000, five tries. He is banging hand held out to 14-1500. Send it back.

+1, send it back. Mine has no trouble with trees over 1000. It is amazing to me that these high end optics manufacturers have this much trouble making a consistent lrf. It seems to be hit or miss with leica, swaro, etc on getting a good one.

Re: Leica 1600

sp6x6 did they get them from Dennis at army navy? I bought one from him but he said I got one of the good ones. Do you shoot with that clan of 1000 yard shooters? Seems like a few Leica's in the first batch had some issues.
