And yet to call my Elite 1500 a piece of crap would be an insult to crap.

    My 1600 is very consistent to 1400 yards. I have heard of a couple bad ones, leica seems to replace them quickly w/o issues.

    Send it back! I have a 1200 and it is amazing. It rarely has trouble ranging and usually that means what I am ranging is to far away. It's worth it to have them fix it.

    Well, I got a bad one. The thing won't reliably range COWS out to 550 yards!!!! I can't get a reading on a silhouette target at 1000. To boot, I bought mine from an ebay store and Bushnell won't cover the product because "it was not purchased at a certified Bushnell dealer." I have been happy with my Bushnell trail cam, but extremely disappointed with a unit that advertises out to 1500 yards in good conditions.

    CRNA, seems like you need to put two and two together. Ebay store, not working, Bushnell will not warranty it? It seem they think it may not be a Bushnell. From what little I have looked on Ebay for optics, it seem to be a lot of junk being passed off as good stuff. If yours will not work to 500, that is the first I have heard of from a Bushnell. They have been one of the more reliable ones out there. I hope you haven't bought one of the Fake Leu. mark 4s also.
