Whats a good 1000 Yard Range finder?

I am shoping for a rangefinder. Who makes one that can read up to 1000 yards reliably? I am looking at a Bushnell 1500 with ARC. Anyone have one? I dont want to buy a 1000 yard rangefinder to discover it cant read anything reliably past 400 yards.

Try Newcon 2000Pro - constant ranging at 1600 -1800yards and in special cond at past yards.
I bet all the time my budy Leica Duovid 1200, and where his rangefinder stops reading mine is starting ranging.

From what I've seen the Newcom's are very reasonably priced. The Ram Optic link (from the Newcom Website Dealers) had the Newcom 2000Pro for $475.

Thanks, I must have looked at the wrong model. Those are reasonable.

Read enough of these posts on this forum and you will see there is only two choices for around $800 dollars. #1 swarvoski #2 Leica 1200crf.
If your looking for a good review on rangefinders look at this link Laser RangeFinders.
Do yourself a favor and buy the right one the first time. I made the mistake of buying a Leupold rangfinder only to be dissapointed. Sold it moved on, bought a Leica 1200crf with the help of people on this forum, ask around for the best prices you might get ahold of Bill Bailey or Lerch.
I am completly satisfied with my new rangefinder does everything I need it to. Its fast, I like the led display it helps with night hunting. Its really small so it fits in your shirt pocket and it gets twice as much battery life than the swarvoski.

The Bushnell with ARC goes to 1000 easy. 1100 it starts getting kind of picky. My Swarovski has been to 1800+ quite a few times.
