Greetings, What in your opinion gives the most bang for the buck in range finders? What options if an ore needed?

I use the old Leica LRF 1200 and the Nikon Monarch 1200. They both work fine with a slight performance edge going to the Leica.

I could range an old white house to about a thousand yds or so. A small (deer sized) target maybe to 500 or so. That is mostly due to my not be able to hold any steadier by hand.:o

Take the range limits advertised with a large grain of salt. I think those are optimal numbers sighting an ideal reflective target in outer space.:rolleyes:

The good new is that more and more models are coming out on the market which will drive or keep prices low as possible for a while.

RX 1000 is the nicest I have seen in a long time.

I use a cheap Nikon prostaff 550. It is a cheap walmart $200 unit. It work pretty good out to 500 yards. Simple and easy.
Yes I want more and better but it is all about the $$
