Well 1/2 way at least. Things have got rather busy here and I have to back out for now. But I can tell you I did do this much.
I got together with a friend and my son and we had my newly reconditioned Swaro Laserguide, and two brand new Leica CRF 1200's. We spent some time at straight up noon ranging brown cows in bright sun on flat ground. Out to 750 yards the Leica's were my choice. Reason? Faster, lighter, smaller, smaller reticle, easier display to read also instant readings. The swaro ranged the same cows in the same conditions but took longer to do it as you will have to hold your breath and remain steady while the swaro does that round and a round circle thing and then flashed 3 times then gives the reading.
Now that being said, again on brown cows in bright sun and out past 750 yards. The Swaro kicked butt. The Leica petered out. I was able to range the cows out to 1100 plus but the swaro would not. The swaro may not do it everytime either, but it would definatly do it when the Leica's would not.
Also earlier that morning we were ranging a 20"x20" white steel target at 1000 yards in morning light sun coming up.They both did a good job. Again I would pick the Leica here for the reticle, size and speed.
In the last hour of daylight they both are awesome , I would trust them both to 1200 yards which is my limit at this time for shooting game in ideal conditions.
Of these two units which will range the absolute farthest on any target, sign, house, or game??
Swaro, hands down out to 1998 yards. Leica would get to 1580.
So, my conclusion at this time?? I am keeping one of each. Why? After my Swaro failed me I want a spare, plus I will match them to the rifle I am hunting with that day. If the rifle is one of my carry rifles that I will not shoot past 700 yards. I will carry the Leica. If I have a heavy rifle and the chance of an over 700 yard shot is there,, the Swaro.
In my opinion, If swaro would change to a smaller reticle, make the display a bit easier to see and do away with all the circle, circle, circle, blink , blink, blink stuff. It wouls win my heart for sure.
These are my opinions so far on these two units. Take it for what it worth
