It only takes a second for the 1 MPH values... I believe the default wind correction that comes up first is for 10 mph. Divide by 10 and you have your 1 MPH.

+1 agreed

Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review

If it is a 1/2 value wind or a 1/4 value wind just divide that into the equation after you divide wind speed after you page through the full value wind chart to get a good accurate wind correction. Might need a calculator at times. Or Just use a good well tuned ballistic app and get spot on corrections with less room for math errors. What works for some, does not ever work for all. These problems for sure increase or decrease in intensity as distance increases or decreases. And the reason I went back to an app. In scenarios like above there was no time savings at all. In fact it could take longer especially if you have to keep looking into the RF and pushing buttons to get your wind correction numbers. Just some things to consider. Wind is king, accurate readings to the intended target are an equal. These two areas are why I use a RF with a small beam divergence and a trusted ballistic app.

In the heat of the moment, I would still prefer 1 mph increments. Maybe once I use it more, I'll get more comfortable with it.

I Highly agree Jeff, well stated, particularly after recently getting my LRKM from Shawn and taking his great class in N Idaho. Small beam is the best at LR and ELR. We shot well and just over 2650 Yds. The Vectronix Shined over all other rangefinders in the class.

Re: Gunwerks G7 BR2 Rangefinder Review

Has anyone used the G7 below 32*F? If so, how cold was it? Did you have any problems? The operating temperature in the manual says 32-122 and I'm pretty sure I won't be using it when its 122, but there is a good chance that it will be well below 32 at times when I'll be hunting.

I used mine at 10F-30F with no issues out to 700-1000 yards. Accuracy was right on.
