The leupold I had was an RX 800. I really have nothing good to say about it. It was really no better then my old bushnell as far as range. When I returned the RX cabelas had a whole pile of them in the bargain cave.............bad sign..... I realize the leica is over budget (200 for the 1000) but Im a firm believer that you will never regret spending a bit more for better quality on any optics. A range finder that wont read when you need it too is very frustrating.
