What rangefinder do you use?

Just wondering what rangefinders people are using for longrange shooting/hunting? are you using one that compensates for angles/ballistics?
i have been looking at the leica 1600 and the new G7 model and it looks impressive its quite a bit of money, but i dont mind spending it if its worth it. I hate buying a cheaper model just to turn around in a few month and buy a better one.
thanks for any imput

Re: What rangefinder do you use?

I have a Swaro that i love it is expensive but I have it to be well worth the money. I have no issues gettting the correct ranges at long distance. Mine does not comp for the angles but I do have a ACI on the base of my scope that will give me the correct angle to compensate for. I recommend it

Good Luck

Love my Swaro. Bangs outs ranges to 1600-1700 yards no problem. Refreshing after my Bushnell ARC 1000 that struggled to range 500 yards. Cameraland rocks (Demo $749 I think paid).

Re: What rangefinder do you use?

I am really satisfied with my Zeiss PRF it does all the ranging i need it to out to around 1200 could probably go a little farther.
I always here good things about the Swaro never used one tho.
The Leica 1600 is will get you out to the 2000 yard mark.
Beyond that LRFs that range in the 2000+ yard arena are all absurdly expensive military stuff like 5k-10k+. Vectronics PLRF 15 and and some other ones doubt you want to spend that much unless your guiding in a CBU on a herd of hostile zombie elk.
