Re: Leica 1200 scan
Okay, here's an update. Today was bright and sunny. I was able to instantly range elk out to 515 yards. Yesterday, when it was overcast, I ranged a bedded elk out at 720. Today they were bedded in the same place, but I couldn't get a read, even using the scan mode. I was able to get a read on a bush next to them, after several tries-723 yds. I also tried, yesterday, to range one sky-lined on a ridge. No luck, but again I got a read on a bush next to her-880 yards. I read an opinion on this site to expect to reliably get 40% of the stated range. That seem to be reasonably accurate so far. I do get to 600 pretty regularly, but much beyond 700 and it starts to get a little tricky. Mostly I am ranging elk, rocks, and trees. This is my first laser rangefinder, so maybe I need to learn more.
