I also have the Leica 1600 and have been happy with that but pushing the limit on rocks at 1600+ yards has been difficult at times to get the Leica to give me accurate readings.

If was shooting a rifle that was only a 1000 to 1600 yard rifle i would have never purchased Terrapin. However, I have 3 rifles capable of being lethal*** past 2,000 yards, and determined that I should have a range finder that can give you accurate readings for the stated purpose.

*** Lethal in my definition as follows; Rocks, Rock Chucks, Coyotes, Crows and Al Qaeda - anything you don't have to go check for a blood trail and then have to track, gut and pack. I would feel extremely bad making an incorrect wind call on an Big Game animal and not being able to recover. "Leave no Elk behind" is my motto!
I really liked this reply "Leathal in my definition as follows; The latter !

Readings are almost always the same with the exception of the tougher ranging situations that you describe. In those cases I look for a distance match between the two readings to confirm that my range is accurate. So far the ballistics calculator in the G7 gives identical readings to my program, including corrections for angled shots which is a great feature of the G7. I will soon be extending my range with a 338 I'm working on, and considering the Vectronix. The nice thing about the G7 is that the programable near and far ranging enables the unit to ignore close range interferences like brush or small branches that I sometimes encounter while deer hunting that my Geovids can't handle. Does the Vectronix have this kind of capability?
Per the Vectronix Terrapin User Manual:

MULTIPLE OBJECT MEASUREMENT:
Up to three separate distances in the line of sight can be obtained with a single
measurement.

Good point! I wasn't sure the Terrapin had this option. In fact I forgot my PLRF10 does it. I have never used it. I just use it in standard mode and it always hits what the crosshairs are on.

Re: My Field Test of The G7-BR2 Rangefinder

Thanks Jeff for testing the RF's. I have both Swaro's, the 8x30 and new RF Bino's, but wish I would have held out for the PLRF05's. That being said, I am saving up some money to get the PLRF05's. I had thought about the G-7, but would like to shoot beyond 1200 yards with my 338 LM.

Again. thanks for posting your test results!
