Re: Leica 1600B
Lecia's e-mailed response....
"We’re pleased to announce the NEW Leica Rangemaster 1600-B. This represents the next innovation in our 20 year history as the leader in laser rangefinding products. Like its predecessor the CRF 1600, the CRF1600-B will determine ranges out to 1600 yards. However, it differs in a few dramatic ways.
The Leica CRF 1600-B features our newly developed ballistic function ABC™ (Advanced Ballistic Compensation), accounts for air pressure, temperature, and angle of inclination to offer holdover values displayed in one of three output modes:
1 - provides linear holdover value in inches (or centimeters)
2 – provides true horizontal distance equivalent to target in yards (or meters)
3 – provides holdover in ¼ M.O.A (or mil radian)
We utilize the same 12 pre-programmed ballistics curves as the CRF 1600, but holdover values will now be given from 100 yards to a full 880 yards (compared to only 500 yards on the CRF 1600).
Other functions, performance specifications, size, weight, dimensions, and price will be the same as in the existing CRF 1600. Expected shipping of the NEW Leica Rangemaster CRF 1600-B is anticipated to begin in June."
