I'm posting mine for sale in a few days. $500. It's yours if you want it. The reason I'm selling it is because I got a Leica Locator Plus for dirt cheap that was being sold as surplus surveying equipment. It's amazing. 7500 yards on cliffs and rock outcrops. Last time out it read 2000 yards on a coyote standing in a snow covered field, hand held, mostly sunny sky's, looking 3 degrees down onto the field - it reads vertical angles too. Bad wind call - the bullet hit 6 inches to the left.
i just realized you are the guy i was talking to at the elko range yesterday, you were shooting a 7 allen mag and you played with my leica for a minute.

I understand the Leica has the tightest beam divergence, but the Swaro ranges the furthest... How do you like the Zeiss?
I dont own any of them but I borrowed a pair of Leica binos with the range finder built in. All I can say is I will be getting some as soon as I can find them on sale somewhere. We were ranging elk at 1200 yards on a hunt last year. I have used most of the high end stuff and like these the best for hunting big game. just my .02............Jim
