Re: Need a Rangefinder

I have used my Bushnell Elite 1500 now for several months. So far I really like it. I can range trees out to about 500yds. Reflective objects much further. In the short time that I have had it I have ranged cars out to 1300+yds fairly easily. The thing that I have noticed is that it is a bit difficult to range targets at greater than 800yds that are non-reflective, but I think that is pretty much a given no matter what rangefinder you are using.

Re: Need a Rangefinder

My buddy has a bushnell elite, he loves it and he can range things further than my Leupold RX-1000 TBR on a clear day just based on the fact that his ranger goes past 1000 yards. Doesn't pick up less reflective objects as well as the Leupold, but it is a solid range finder.

Re: Need a Rangefinder

Hey CRNA, are you using "good" batteries? Mine did the same 3-500 on trees with new sportsmans warehouse 9v and I almost took it back but with durecells it will hit trees or brush reliably out to 11-1350 depending on the weather. If your using the cheap stuff that may really be costing performance.

You know, I honestly don't know what I have in it. I will certainly check it. Thanks for the information. I would have never thought to check the batteries until they were dead.
