    I enjoy shooting and I'm at the range every chance I get. I have a .308 Winchester in a Remington V.S. that I shoot well. The problem I have is with knowing the range to the target (deer or woodchuck). Where I live in New York a long shot is 400-500 yards. There are alot of range finders on the market that claim to be the latest and greatest. I would like to keep the cost under $300. Which do you suggest for my price and range?

    Thanks for the help,
    Deergrunt

    If your range is going to be at the 400 or 500 yard vacinity, just get one of the Leica 800 models.

    They will be reliable at that range most of the time.

    I would suggest the Leica as well. It should work perfect to 500 yards, although the 1200 would be more of a guarantee for a bit more. You could always get a used 1200 model for about 300 if you looked around, I'm sure there is plenty of them out there for sale.
