    Just wondering how folks feel about some range finders. I'm thinking about buying the Swarovski mono range finder. I want to get consistant ranges while hunting and practicing out to a least 1000 yards, but further is better.

    Has anyone compared this range finder with the Zeiss and others? I notice the Ziess and Leica are somewhat less $$$

    Just trying to make sure I putting my $$ on the right equipment the 1st time. I cant afford to purchase a 2nd one if I dont like the Swarovski or what ever I get.

    I have uwned or used all you mentioned. I would go with the Leica 1600 because it has the smallest beam divergence and a very easy to see and smaller reticle. Plus you will save a few $$
