I been thinking about getting a range finder. Anybody own one or had any dealings with different models? What do you recomend? I think 500 yards would be good enough for me.
+1....a very good learning tool....Guess i'm gonna have to go get one now :thumbup:smoffett said:I own a Leupold RX-600, supposedly good to 600 yards. I've used it out to about 200, no complaints. About $200. My nephew owns the Nikon Prostaff 550, and he said it has been flawless, again about $200. I don't range deer with it. I just range trees and then estimate distance to deer based on those landmarks I've already ranged. You can get better at estimating range by guessing distances to objects and then ranging them with the rangefinder. I was surprised at how bad I was at estimating range when I started doing this. With practice, at this will improve though. HTH.
