There's an article about rangefinders in the March 20 Shotgun News. The author states he won't bother with anything under 800 yards and his personal favorite is the Bushnell 1000, although the Leica 800 may be better suited for low-light conditions as it uses an LED, while the Bushnell uses an LCD, which can be hard to see in some situations. But I like Bushnell's features, such as rain and scan modes. I don't know if the Leica has these features. I'm in the market too but am waiting to hear reports on the Leica 1,200 yard model. Anyway, it seems every time I watch the hunting show in TV, the guys are always using the Leica 800. That may mean something.

Is Ranging Spectrum range finder any good? I believe Cabelas carry it and I've seen this on Maj. John Plaster's "The Ultimate Sniper" book.

The Bushnell 800 had an illuminated LCD display when it was first released, but now all of the current models lack this. Anyone know why this was done? I heard that there was a problem with the Leicas and they were recalled. Dunno what the whole story was on that.
