Re: Nikon 800 and 1200 lasers
I have and use the nikon buckmasters 800. My dad bought it about 3 years ago I think. It works really well out to about 700 yards. I dont have any complaints except for bright sunny days, in real open flat ground or fields, it has a hard time picking up coyotes. There probly 500-600 I'm guessing. I have got elk out to 900, trees and brush out to 900 as well. All this was done with me sitting down and resting the unit on my knee. Careful breathing and a couple attempts was all it took. The glass is not that bad. Pretty decent in my opinion. My dad upgraded to the nikon monarch 800. It does not read any better then the older buckmaster. If anything, I think its harder because of the way you have to hold it. I like the way you hold the buckmasters. For hunting deer, elk, or rocks out to 800 yards, as long as your not out in the flat open dessert or prairie when its bright and sunny, you shouldn't have a problem getting a reading.
