    Anyone out there that give me the heads up on what they feel is a good range finder. I'm looking for one that can read out to at least 1000 yds. On a moose.

    Regards.

    Which ever one you choose I suggest you look for one that claims at least 1,500 yds if you want it to range to 1,000 yds.

    Vectronix makes some really nice Laser Range Finders. We currently have the PLRF-10 and PLRF-05 (Terrapin) in stock. If you'd like we can email you the brochures.

    I think the best deal around right now is the Leica 1600. It is being discounted to $650 by most retailers in anticipation of their new 1600-B.

    The 1600 will get you way past 1000 yards with angle compensation, temperature and pressure readings as well.

    I just picked up a g seven by gunwerks. Tried it out on bigger objects such as buildings, trucks and treelines and it ranged out to 2316 yards. I have used it at the range twice and picked up targets out to 1477. I still have a lot of testing to do with it but it looks good so far. Entered 2 rifles in the ballistics program and it mirrored my kestrel dial up so far. Shot it out to 900 working it from 600 to 900 with both rifles on 2 different days with very good results.

    For what it's worth, I have a Leica CRF-1600 that is spot on out to 1504 yds so far. That was a measured distance using a surveyor friends equipment to compare. Both units were within a yd. to that number. Plus as Scot E says, retailers are discounting them by a good number.
