The 1600 B gives readings in PSIa so you multiply it by 2 to get inches of Hg. It's in this thread

The origional post asked for "true horizontal distance" To me that ment a true distance on a horizontal plane which would not have an angle.

That is what I answered with my 1st post. If you want a compensating angle distance then my answer that al 3 did this was wrong. The zeiss and swaro do not.

Leica reports barometric pressure in pounds per square inch (PSIA) most shooting solutions use inches of mercury ("Hg). I got the conversion factory from psia to "Hg from another thread.

Re: Rangefinder Help

My CRF1600 has never been activated in the other stuff and just gives me LINE OF SIGHT period. That is all I wanted it for. Hope this helps.

Yeah I meant the, "compensating angle distance," the distance to shoot the shot for when there is an angle involved, as opposed to the line of sight distance.

Does the original 1600 do this?

Re: Rangefinder Help

If all else fails stick to the rule of "shoot first, and ask questions later."

lol

Be safe though.
