    If you plan on shooting under 500 600 yards your OK. If your planning on going out much further, don't waste your money. The beset rifle and glass is useless if you can't get an accurate and reliable range.

    Woo Hoo!

    I just picked up a brand new Leica Rangemaster CRF 1200 Rangefinder on Ebay last night for $560.

    I think it is a good price for it.
