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.

    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?

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

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

    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..

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