The problem with currently available range finders. They do not zoom in close enough to provide an accurate reading.

I wish someone would develope a range finding spotting scope.

I currently have a newcon optics, and have in perfect circumstances ranged to 1300 yards at a granite rock face.

Not all Swaro units are made the same, just as Jeff (Broz).

Re: Good range finder in the field?

I can tell you what isn't worth a crap

Leupold RXB-IV

As just a bino they are pretty good. Small... good optics.

The rangefinder is accurate enough but it's only good out to about 550 yards. They claim over 1000 yards to a "reflective" target... lot of good that does... I guess I could run over there and stick some reflective tape on the animal and then run back and range it... Battery life is terrible. You get maybe a couple of dozen ranges before low battery kicks in. It uses CR123's and those are pricey...
