Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review
I don't want to re-hash old stuff, especially with my 1st post on this forum, but I need experienced opinions before I pull the trigger on a new RF.
I've read all of the reviews available for both the BR2 and 1600B as well as the instructional videos and applicable portions of the owners' manuals. My questions ultimately boil down to determining whether, for my use, the superior ballistics program of the BR2 is worth twice the price of the 1200B which is lighter and likely simpler to use?
When I look at the trajectory/holdover tables in the 1200B manual appendix, I see a few which are close to the cartridge loads I use, but they are not as spot on as what the BR2 would produce based upon specific balistic coefficients and muzzle velocities. I will be using the RF for .223, .243, .264 Win. Mag., 308, and 30-06 loads. Since my shooting will likely always be at or below 600 yards, and certainly never over 800 yards, are the selections from the 1200B trajectory tables close enough or is the difference between the two RFs significant enough at the 500 - 600 yard range to warrant the additional investment in the BR2?
I can always use the $800 difference for ammo, mags or a better spotting scope tripod.
