i am selling my leupold rangefinder because i want something more consistant out to 1000 yards or close to it. the leupold is suppose to be a 1200 yard unit but i would consider it a great unit for 500 yards or less. i have read good reviews on leica and wandered if anyone here uses one?
I have tried several brands while hunting out west and found that the leica rangefinders gave the longest yardage readings. I used a 1200 and could get results to 800 plus yards. Never could get a 1000 yard reading with any of them.
If this helps at all , I was shopping for a new more powerfull one at Sportsmans Warehouse near Pittsburg . The salesman recommended the Nikon Monarch Gold 1200. He could have reccomended ones costing 5 times as much , but didn't . I still have an old Bushnell , so I have yet to buy the Nikon , but will when I decide to upgrade .
I sent my leupold back and got a Leica 1200 The Leica will range twice as far instantly.You can count on 800yds or so almost all the time depending on light and conditions I have got 1200 a couple times. Was lucky to ever get 500 with the leupold.both were are the older models new Leupolds may be differant
Get the Leica.. Hands down,,, Go to a store that has them all,and look through them, leupold, Bushnell,Nikon are very dark, when looking through them,,,Youll will be able to tell the difference right away.. The Leica is smaller,and a lot better mechanics..They may cost a little more, but you get what you pay for...
