I'm thinkin' that most here aren't catching on to the importance of beam divergence.
Most seem more enthused by ranging the mountain way over there than accurately ranging a small furry target on a flat snow/stubble covered field. Or even being able to accurately range a big game animal back in the trees a bit.
I've followed your posts and after attempting to range deer in mid body deep CRP grass plus an elk with one single darned tree in beam pattern, it was easy to catch on that if you can't range a yote in stubble or a deer in sage brush at a decent distance you're gonna have a problem at moderate distances also.
The Leica 1200 was the best out there 4 or 5 years ago but things have changed.
The Leica 1600 is probably the best in its class but that class is a couple of rungs down from when one wants to consistently practice
to a mile.
