Re: Leica 1600B

Do keep in mind that both units use generic BC curves for the trajectory outputs so you can't input your specific bullet BC to get your exact numbers. If you are lucky to find a curve close to the load you are shooting then it will work ok, especially when we are talking about the shorter distances that these units work to, ie 575-875.

If they would add a true trajectory calculator like the G7 then they would really have something.

Re: Leica 1600B

Scott,

I couldn't agree more. Where I love this thing is 1) when I need a FAST/precise firing solution I have it and 2) if it's beyond 875/550 then I can still use the angle/baro/temp readings to input into my handheld ballistic calc.

The other option they need to add is to show the shoot to distance when incline/decline is being used. Then it could be used for bowhunting and also for BDC turret users like BOTW, G7, and Kenton turrets users.

The "B" model will give a "shoot to" distance in the EHR mode. One simply pushes the button, gets the straight line range and in about a second the adjusted "angle" distance is displayed in the view finder. Problem is it won't work less than 82-83 yds so bow hunters are out of luck.

Re: Leica 1600B

Thats good to hear, I just bit the bullet and got one on order.

What about the tripod adapter? Is that worth the extra money, or can you steady it just as easy on something else?
