I recently put a post on here about laser range finders. It got no replies in several days. Now I can't even find the post. Have I done something wrong on this forum & everyone is choosing to ignore me? My last 2 posts got very little to no responses. All I want is a recommendation from someone that is familiar wit them. I am thinking about buying one. I have been reading up on sales sites, but wanted some real world advice.
I have been looking at the Nikon 8377 Riflehunter 1000 Rangefinder. I have read good things but would like input from a shooter that has used it. Seems like not many people use rangefinders.
I use the Nikon Riflehunter 1000 and like it fine. Bought it on sale locally for $280. Furthest I have used it so far is 600 yards and it performed well. Good accuracy and repeatability. I am very satisfied with it.
I think you'll get exactly what you pay for on rangefinders. I had an old Bushnell 800 that was ok but even with the internal light option, it was difficult to read in low light. So I bit on a Leica CRF900 and it is fantastic with the red LED display. I have been able to range my neighbor's house "thru" my living room window, go over to the open doorway and get the same distance - I find that pretty neat. The objective on the Leica is a bit larger than most so it's brighter and the optics are as good as what half the public carries for binoculars - ymmv. It will range off of trees, leaves, bushes, a patch of ground in the field, it's remarkable what this unit will sense. I don't live out west where I'd be shooting hundreds of yards at elevated positions so the angle compensation is useless to me for bowhunting and woodchucks. Good luck.
Thanks guys for all the replies. I will look into the models suggested.
Again, thank you,
