OK Guys, its time to draw the line in the sand. - I\'m ticked off. I've done the searches, after I learned how, from ss7mm, and studied the search results, but found all comments to be subjective. This fall I will have the opptunity to make a 1K range shot on deer and elk. I will be ready to make that kind of a shot in all ways except for one thing. The LRF. I have a Leica 1200 scan model. It will not cut the mustard in desert sage brush or flat open country. Three horses were grazing at between 700 and 730 yards. I know that for certain, as my 1031 yard target was in the background and they were grazing around the spot where I had set my steel coyote at 740 yds. The Leica would not range them AT ALL! I could range leafless russian olive trees to 750 and just about anything that was under 500 could be ranged. Is my Leica weak in the poop, or is that typical, even with a new battery? Its gonna be a very bad deal to have rifles that out range the range finder /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif What about any of the 1500 models, Burris, Swaro etc.?
