Had to run it at sea level since I don't have a Leica Geovid HD-B in front of me to auto adjust to 4100 ft. Obviously there is something that I am missing on the functionality besides my ealier concern if the Leica showed a line of sight reading for windage & not being able to adjust sight height (should only change point of impact by few inches at 1000 yards, but this is very easy to account for). I know the Leica is going to auto correct for elevation which is a huge factor in missed shots if hunting in an area with changing elevations (about 10" per 1000 ft @ 1000 yards for a 308).
I don't think the inch is going to make a difference at all.
I do think that you're better off to just use the bino's as a range finder for shooting past 6-700 or so because with nightforce, gun werks and atrag you have the ability to true your drop and get better solutions that are more tailored to your rifle. I use the kestrel with atrag and it has the option of inputting different muzzle velocity at different temperatures which is something that needs to be accounted for at longer ranges.
Good question though about the line of sight for windage holds.
