Re: Leica 1600 LRF: actual use?

Is .5 MOA off a miss? I'm confused, but I'm new to this.

The 1/2 MOA miss was at 450 yds. So, 4.5 x .5 = 2.25". Missed it by that much!

Ok, technically it would be 2.25 x 1.047 = 2.36".

Alan,

Keep me in mind when you decide to unload the slightly used 1600...

Re: Leica 1600 LRF: actual use?

I was able to obtain my 1600-B in June and I absolutely love it. For the past few months I've been testing/using it, and it's one of the best tools a LRH can have with them. Something I've learned since my original report on this is my apples to apples drops are much closer if I use a 200 yd zero. Being a sniper competitor I always prefer a 100 yds zero. Out to 600 yds, I was always within 1-3 clicks. Problem was beyond 600, out to 875 yds, the max range available for the B model, I got further and further apart between the B model and my Shooter program for a max of 2.75 moa @ 875. Too much! Once I started using a 200 yd zero I was always with 3/4 moa. At 875 yds I'm only 1/4 moa off. Pretty darn great when one needs a firing solution, which uses range, station pressure, temp and up/down angle, NOW!

The only thing Leica screwed up on when the took the original 1600 and brought out the B model was the read out for 1/4 moa drop is in "clicks" instead of MOA. This morning out my window I ranged some trees at 849 yds and got 85 clicks instead of 21.25 moa.

Re: Leica 1600 LRF: actual use?

Hi, new to all this. I have just bought a Leica 1600b solely for using the EHR function. However I don't seem to be able to set it in that mode. Unless it is in that mode and I don't know it. It never gives me an adjusted distance reading no matter how far or at what angle I try it. Do they give the actual measurement, then the adjusted one. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Dave,

Sorry to say, I do not believe the 1600 has the EHR function. The 1600-B does. Even though I sold my 1600 a month back to fund the purchase of my new 1600-B, I still have the instructions in a PDF format on my computer. I just now read through them to insure I'm giving you correct info. I did not find any references to EHR. The good thing is, even though it may not give the corrected range, it will give you the corrected drop. Before buying my B model, I took the basic 1600 model up to the base of my local mountains which are about 1500 yds behind my house and range numerous distances up to 875 yds with angles up to 32 degrees and compared the drops with those on my DROIDS Shooter program. They were identical. So fear not, the device will give you the correct drops. Hopefully that is enough to get your what you need.

Alan

Hi Alan, thanks for the reply. I have got the 1600 B model.. I'm just not sure how to turn the EHR mode on, or how to verify if it is on. Thanks again
