Re: Rangefinders

What do you think about the Bushnell Scout 1000 ARC?

    I have a Bushnell Legend 1200 ARC. It was less than $250 on sale, as I recall. I've ranged deer and cattle with it out to nearly 500 yds. It won't range a white outhouse at 1,000 yds, though.

    It doesnt matter what you get in the $200-$300 price range, they are all the same.

    If you want quality, it will cost you more. If you want reliability, it will cost you more. If you want 1000+ yds, it will cost you more. If you want warranty, it will cost you more. If you buy a $200-$300 range finder, it will cost you more.

    Go to a store that has them on display and will let you try them outside with a salesman. Its the only way unless you know people that have what you are intested in. You need to see for yourself.

    1000 ARC is a piece of crap. Won't range White Tail Deer past 350 Yds. The longest reading i've got with it is 600yd on a glass building so....

    Listen to Broz, he's done the research and testing on alot of RF units and thanks to him I saved alot of $ by going straight to what works which is the Lieca 1600. There are better units but for the average hunter the Lieca gives dependable and repetable readings,even on small targets, at long distances.
