Vectronix PLRF 10 Info ??

Anyone got one? or Used one? From what I can tell they are to be admired among the best.

Range in Yard or Meters to 2500 meters / 2750 yards.

The smallest Beam devergence I have seen. It is .3 x 1.5 mrad. So if I converted it correctly (please feel free to check my math) that is about 1 ft. x 4 1/2 ft. at 1000 yards. I really really LIKE this!!

Thoughts??

Jeff

i remember reading about them a while back and from what i could gather, they are a Lieca on steroids. they seem to be a considerable step up from the Swaro.

Oh my!! I been playing with one today. Ranged my 20" sq steel target in bright sun to a mile. Rocks in the sun to 2650 yards. So I went looking for antelope. Found a few in dead flat pasture, bright sun, closest one was 1259 yds and the farthest was 1354. Another group was closer but I watched as one walked behind another, close one at 1083 the one hehind was 1089. This is one bad mammerjammer !!

Im mustering up the courage to buy a PRLF10.....Im sure as soon as I work up long range loads for my new snipe tac, I will be wishing I ordered this thing 4 weeks ago.

Did you get yours new or used and what was the lead time, who'd you get it from, and what price????

thanks in advance

Jeff,

That is good to hear!!! and from a trusted source, too!!

I have that 375 AM coming soon(I hope, I hope I hope!!!) and will see which vehicle I'll sell to fund the vectronix. I think I screwed up by getting only a 20 MOA rail.
Also, it indicates that a Wild won't be necessary.

zman,

What's the anticipated build time on your thumper?

Roy, ever tried to range a black cow?? Its tough. This morning with full sun behind me I ranged one at over a mile. It was all cow baby on flat ground.. left, right, or up was a no read. I am having a ball with this thing. I set two sand bags on the truck hood and plop it on top them. It has crosshairs so it is like shooting a rifle.. to bad it doesn't have a Jewel on it...

Yea, I can't range a cow with my Leica 1200 on a regular basis over 600 yards or so. It seems pretty selective as to the color of the cow.

Got a report that the 375 should be completed next month. If its more towards the middle of the month my trip is still on. If later than that I'm in trouble. Have a gig starting out of state on the 2nd of sept which will throw a wrench into the whole thing.
