Range Finders for 1K and beyond .. Opinion DC???

Ok now that I have picked a cal. for 1K and beyond my current range finder is pretty invaluable at those ranges. Again my biggest concern is size/weight with price being the other.
I need ideas and suggestions as to range finders for this type of hunting.

Thanks in advance for all who answer [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    I have the best laser available but, the price is a bit steep for the average guy who is not an avid longrange hunter. It is the Russian military LRU-1 unit and is the MOST powerful available at this time.

    It is the size of a pair of binoculars and will range to 12 miles accurately within plus or minus 5 meters
    I have it advertised here on LRH.

    I have two for sale and two more coming.

    Check it out.

    If I gave you a demonstration, you would want it.

    How small an object will it range at say---1,000 yards? How easily can you distinguish what is really being ranged? Could you pick out a deer standing in 2 foot tall grass at 1,000 yards?

    How much magnification is there in the viewing lens?

    It has 7X power and also a lighted reticle with a cross hair.

    It comes with it's own tripod and will range anything you put the cross hair (reticle) on.
    You can hold it like a binocular also.

    Has a charger and two batteries. along with a carry case for the rangefinder.

    There are no finer range finders available to the civilian poipulation then these military units. The Russian is also the most powerful available.

    I've used a lot of rangefinders but, these are the best I have had my hands on. It will repeat everytime in any type of weather conditions.
