Re: Range Finder Advise

And yes , I do ask the deer to stand still..................Walk the distance off or if I have the time tape it off .........walk back and find that the $700 Leica is way off the mark....................

Re: Range Finder Advise

in my opinion the only way to beat the leica and swarvo is to spend 4k on the plrf10. Now if you only need 800 yards consistently the first to will work most of the time.

Re: Range Finder Advise

$$$$ 4,000 are you serious. Thats nuts, even the federal gov cant afford that.

So will the Leica 1000 give me accurate readings out to 800 yards? Or will I need to pop for the 1600

Hey, Im new at this ................shooting anything at 800 is a long long way out there...............Seem to me anything much past that distance would end up gut shot at best.

Re: Range Finder Advise

The zeiss PRF, Leica 1200 or 1600, swaro, will all do what you need them to do and they are very accurate. Zeiss $600, swaro $900-$1000, leica $800 for the 1600 any one of these are great rangefinders.

The PLRF 10 will cost you around $3750, a background check, and a 6 week wait. My swaro was unable to accurately range deer ON FLAT GROUND at 700+ yds DUE TO THE LARGE BEAM DIVERGENCE. The Leica 1600 was much better, but the PLRF 10 is pure magic! Yes, it is expensive, but a $5,000 long range rifle is worthless without an accurate range. Where the terrain is not flat and/or there are trees, rocks, etc. near your target, the other range finders are fine. My terrain here in eastern NC is absolutely flat agricultural fields which extend for miles. The PLRF 10 was a must for me. Hope this makes my earlier post more clear.
