If you're only shooting deer use a .243. It will kill at long range. No stunt to it, just good shot placement, like any other caliber.
I'd use one on elk if that's what I needed to shoot.

Well after much research the G7 is going to be the product for me. I will let you guys know how it works out for a novice long range shooter.

Once you get your data fine tuned, the G7 unit gives super accurate ballistic solutions.
I have dialed in a bunch of first shot kills on marmots from 600 to 1400 yards using this unit.

Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review

I've read through several pages of this thread, but not all. If this question has already been asked and answered, I apologize for the repeat. When those who own the G7 range game and getting accurate readings, are you using it on a tripod or can you accurately range without the use of a tripod? I have big dreams of getting one of these this summer and I don't think the answer will sway me either way, but I am curious. I'm very hopeful that it will not require a tripod as my gun is plenty to pack around as is.

Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review

You do not need a tripod just steady hands! If you plan on ranging way out there a tripod will help you get more consistent and accurate readings however we have used our g7's and got good readings beyond a mile by just resting the range finder on the scope of our rifles while we are laying prone if that makes sense. The steadier you can hold it the better it will work.

Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review

I don't use a bipod with my G7 but I'd do try to support it in order to get an accurate reading, particularly with game past.500 yards. My typical rest is to brace the rangefinder against my rifle/scope once I'm in a supported position, either prone or sitting. This practice isn't particular to the G7. I have done it with all the RF's I have owned.

Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review

Thanks for the info! I figured the steadier the better, but was really hoping I could make due without having to pack around a tripod. I don't intend on shooting over 1,000, so sounds like I could maybe get by without one. Thanks for the reply!
