Re: new zeiss rangefinder

Broz- some of both....Sky line range of 886 YDS reported back first attempt, which should have taken out any question of a hillside reflection. It is supper fast when ranging a rock or hillside near your intended target.....but that is probably similar to any range finder. My experience is limited when it comes to using a good range finder; this is the best I have got my hands on. Stc

    Was it sunny or overcast? The sun usually ruins the effective range of my finder.

    Thanks

    That does not sound all that bad. In my mind you just can't compare numbers unless you have all 3 lined up on bipods and ranging the same target on the same day with the same conditions. That is why I refuse to pick before doing this. I would keep using it and getting to know it better. That time spent will most likely pay off when you really need it.

    Thanks for the info.
