I only carry the Vectronix now, but have a Leica CRF for back up in the truck. The reason I have owned so many was the first few Swaro's had the battery freeze up issue. Then I had one for my son which we have sold and replaced with a Leica CRF. For a while I was buying them to compare looking for a superior unit among the swaros. Yes some will range farther than others, not all RF's are created equal until you get to the PLRF10. I bought 5 of those used and they all were equal and ranged awesome.
Don't take all this wrong, the Swaro hasa 6' beam at 1000 yards so it is probably only about 4' at 800 yds. Just watch it on the flat ground and especially in sage brush, corn stalks, etc. Get a rest!!! You wouln't shoot a rifle off hand to 800 yards expecting to hit 2' either side of the target , right? Or 1000 yards expection to hit 3' either side? This is why a rest is so important. Get it solid and get 3 consecutive matching numbers. Then I would say you are good to go.
This is coming from a guy that ownes how many Chronographs and uses them all at once???
