    I have owned 4 for them and none of mine would go past 1999. The only time I could get that reading was in late evening, low light, and on a rock face. Any time I tried to walk it out a few more yards it resulted in no reading. One of the problems is that at this distance the large beam of the Swaro is 12 ft. x 12 ft. With that and the huge reticle circle it is hard to say for sure what in the field of view it is reflecting off of.
