Opinion on a Leica Rangemaster LRF 1200 scan.

I need to get good ranges out to 1000-1200yrds, I can't drop enough coin right now for the newer Leica 1600 and the Bushnell I was planning on getting seems to have a monster beam so I'm thinking a used one may be in my price range but will it do what I want to do? Opinions please!!

Re: Opinion on a Leica Rangemaster LRF 1200 scan.

I have a Leica 900 scan and my hunting partner has a Leica 1200 scan. Both give ranges to bushes rock etc as far as the name suggests. Both don't like rain misty cloud etc.
The 1200 has given ranges in excess of 1200 in low light and to hillsides etc. Most Of our ranging is across valleys to hillsides etc. Don't know how they go on flat land eg antelope.

It's pathetic is what it is!! I can get away with $650 if I can card it and stretch it out cash I'm looking at 300-350, sad but I'm really trying to use the best I can honestly afford. I don't own a LRF now but everyone I hunt with has one that is capable out to the 800-900 yrd range. A guy I work with is going to lend me his Leica rangemaster 1200 to test it out to see if it will do what I want. It looks like I can get one used for the 300-350 range maybe. I really want a bino because of eye problems but if I can get a range fast without messing around I may get away with the monocular style.
So far the reviews on the Bushnell Fusion have been great but not many guys even care or understand the idea of beam divergence causing problems and obviously it has a large beam. I dealt with a crappy wind meter last season and after getting a Kestrel 3500 a couple weeks ago it is clear that crappy equipment SUCKS, good equipment ROCKS!!!
