Re: Rangefinder experience
I have ranged broken brush in low light and sunny conditions at 1999 yards with my swaro. After stepping back 1 or 2 yards it reads error. I assume 1999 is the cut of or maybe it is a coincidence. I have ranged deer at 1300 yards with ease. Dall sheep at 1800 yards with the same ease. I havent had the chance to range game any farther than those. I cant be dissapointed in not being able to range past 1999 yards scince it is a 1500 yard rangefinder.
When I had my Lieca 1200, I could easily range game and brush at 1225 in any light conditions. Never seemed to work past that. You cant be too dissapointed in that scince it was a "1200" yard range finder! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
Both my Lieca and Swaro did/do very awesome with in the parameters they were designed for.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
