So I’m still using my leupold rx-ll rangefinder. Works fine for archery but not so good for long range shooting. I don’t need 1500 yard deer capable but I’d like to be able too hit one at 700 plus yards. I’m gonna set a budget of $500-700. What are solid choices? I heard some chatter about maven. The rx2800 looks like a solid choice. What else should a guy consider before buying?

No experience with the Maven, but that adjustment wheel on the side makes it look like it would be a chore to get into traditional rangefinder pouches.

Vortex Razor HD 4000 is right at the low end of your price range and would probably do everything you are looking for.

I run a Sig Sauer which I like, but paid more for it to get the onboard ballistic calculator.

In that price range if you don't want anything fancy, just a range, the Kilo 2200 is what I would get. Keep in mind, if a company advertises 1500 yards on a deer, actual field results will almost always be much less than that, often half.

I have the Vortex Razor HD 4000. Have not yet had a chance to use it on deer.

However, I have ranged a cow (bovine) at 1998 yards.

Glass is clear.

It will compensate for angle but doesn’t have the option of inputting your load into the unit.

I believe I got mine for ~$450.

I’d recommend the Leica 2800.com
Check around for best pricing.
It has onboard ballistics that work quite well, & easy to set up, that’ll be of use for the longer ranges your looking to shoot. Great glass, fast, accurate ranging, tight centered beam.

Leica 2400 for $500 is the great!
