    I have an Bushnell 1500 with arc and seems to work very well for the price. In partly cloudy conditions i have ranged a pine tree at 1660 yards. deer sized objects expect ranges to about 700 yards. As far as i have heard for the best ranging capabilities the swarovski is the best you can get for under a $1,000

    The best is the Swaro. It's just expensive. I've used a few others but nothing comes close to the abilities of the Swaro.

    This comparason is a little old but still very usefull. I have a Swaro, Bushnell and a Newcon. I personally like the Swaro best.
