Re: Leica's New Geovid HD-B
I can get a pair of 10x HD-B's at dealer discount where I work. Almost pulled the trigger too until I read a fairly technical review. I hope Leica is reading this.
1. Out put in clicks, like the 1600-B, instead of pure MOA. This is just pure nonsense from the designer of this fine optic. A tool of this design is supposed to make the shooters life easier, not harder. I want it read 36.3 moa instead of 145 clicks. I succumb to certain types of pressure and doing division, in my head, is one of them. With that said, I know I can simply paste a simple conversion chart on my rifle. Almost, but not a deal killer.
2. The online web based ballistic app that allows one to input rifle's exact ballistic data, save it to a tiny memory device and drop it into the bino's battery compartment is genius. Only problem is we only get to use G1 BC, not G7, which is more accurate for our long range BT type of bullets. That puts me off 12.7" at 1 mile with a 300 gr OTM from my 338 Edge. DEAL KILLER!
