    Is there any difference in quality or reliability between the Wild or the Barr & Stroud coincedence rangefinders? I know that the Wild measures in Meters, while the Barr & Stroud measures in Yards. Which is the better unit to purchase? I'm curious as the Wilds are easier to purchase now(Barr supply has been exhausted?). Thanks for your imput! [​IMG]

    I have the wild and am very happy with its ability to accurately maser the distance I am shutting. I make a drop chart in meters so there is no guess work in the field.

    The Wild has MUCH better optics.
