just more reason to save for a good one. I'll be letting leica know as well. i.ll try it on a tripod to day see if it helps
Cow color makes all the difference!! My 1200 won't tap a black cow over 400yrds in the sun, red cow gains 200yrds. I'm bummed that the 1600 is having such a crappy time, I've borrowed a couple and hitting elk in the evening at 1600yrds plus was not hard, hit a small pine tree at just short of 2000yrds of hand but braced up well and it would range about 50% of tries, anything under 1400yrds was 100%.
I'm bound and determined to get the Vectronix and not waste anymore money on range finders.
