Sorry, you can't use both those words in the same sentence.
As for my opinion of the Leupold Rf's. I say save your money until you can buy a real RF. The working units that will reach 1000 yards on a regular basis start with the Leica 1200 CRF-Y. You should be able to get a used one for around $425 shipped. Or step up to a new Leica 1600 CRF for $659. and you will be set and happy with your purchase.
There is tons of great info on about any unit you wish to read about on this site. Also lots of basic info on reliability and beam divergence of any unit. Just do a little search using the box in the upper right corner of this page.
