Re: Leica 1600B

For me, even having owned the Swaro LFR which has a threaded mounting hole, I don't feel the need for any kind of tripod to obtain the accuracy I'm looking for.

Re: Leica 1600B

I can't figure out if Ehr on my new 1600b makes sense.
It looks like it is completely off.

I took following reading:

Curve: us1
Zero: 100yd
Range: 320
Angle: 30 degrees
Temp: 87f
Press: 29.83

The Ehr was 317
The hold was 8


When I calculate equivalent range manually, I get 277yd. I understand that 1600b
Takes temp and press into account, but can the difference be that huge?

Do you get more normal readings with your 1600b?

Re: Leica 1600B

I"m guessing a hold of 8 means 8 clicks or 2 moa if each click value is .25 moa.

Re: Leica 1600B

What about ehr? Does 317 ehr sound right under those conditions?
It is a big deviation from my 277 manual calculation.

Re: Leica 1600B

I have noticed the same thing with my 1600B my manual calculations dont seem to jive with the ehr range the 1600 is spitting out....I dont think I would trust the ehr on a long shot with an angle..

Re: Leica 1600B

I just got a 1600b and can't get much more than 1100 yards out of mine I'm disappointed to say the least!
