I have a Vortex Ranger 1000. I have ranged a water tower out to 878 yards and a large boulder to 855 yards. They are durable, waterproof, and provide a clear crisp image. I paid $300 and I believe they just released the Ranger 1500. IMO If you are looking for something that performs well, durable, and is budget friendly go with Vortex optics.
Go where others refuse, but do not lose your common sense along.
I'm not a leica salesman, but mine does everything I want, archery and I have ranged groundhogs at a 1000, high reflective targets like buildings 1200 no problem. I use it for long range hunting and have ranged deer at a 1000 no problem. Not saying the others aren't good but the leica certainly is not substandard. You can get a used one for under $400. They now have a CRF 1600, if I replace my 1200 it will more than likely be another leica.
I also own the same Leica and any of you that think there is no difference in optics are dreaming ! I've looked through every make you can imagine and about half out of the store...there is a big big difference in quality of image under all conditions... I think that all of them are reasonably accurate IF you and the instrument can see it...I've never been let down by my Leica ... Just like anything else, yes they are not cheap but you get what you pay for ! Take that extra $20 every week put it away and you'll be surprised how quickly you'll make the difference up... They are worth it ..
