So far I have been looking at the Leupold RX1000 and the Leica 1000 and 1600's. Does anyone have any experience with either of these? Which one is better? And anything else that I should look at?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Don't waste your time or money on any of the rangefinders that are only rated to 1,000 yards. For the distance your would like to use them for go with Leica 1600, G7 or a Terrapin. The others will disapoint.
There are a multitude of threads on rangefinders. The search function will assist you with that.
