Re: New Rangefinder G7?
The g7 will give you a ballistics solution out to 1400 yards it also give you wind reading in 5mph steps (5, 10, 15, ect). The ranging capabilities will reach out to 2200 and probably further. I know this because mine has ranged out to 2200 and really have not tried any further as I don't need any info out past 1400 in reality. The 1600 only has ranging capabilities which is great if you have all the time in the world.
I had a bear last year before I got my g7. I had only enough time to set up range the bear get behind the gun and as I was typing in all the crap to my ballistics app well the bear topped over the hill never to be seen again. He was 765 yards and if only if I had the g7 I could have had time to shoot. That senerio is what prompt me to get the g7 as I knew it would handle what I needed.
So if you want a fast ballistics solution that is CORRECT 100% of the time out to 1400 yards then the g7 is your baby. The size is not bad at all. I wear mine around my neck all the time and it is never in my way.
