    I've had my eye on them just picking between the 1000 and 1600.

    I've bought several items from Doug @ cameraland, He's an outstanding individual and they have a great CS. I wouldn't hesitate buying from them and they do a ton of business on Ebay also!!

    Who has the 1000 Leica? What is the real world ranging on fur/nonreflective material. My Bushnell was a 1000yd but failed on fur past 225yds. Worked at the range to 750yds on paper or steel tags. Guess I'm going to get one and test it. Not on a hunt!

    I've used CameralandNY too and was very happy with the deal I got.

    SWFA is another good place. I traded in an old spotter and was pleasantly surprised at what they paid me for it.

    And, I've bought a lot of stuff on eBay.

    I have a Leica CRF 1200. It will read on anything at 900-1000ysd. If it dont read the first time its farther then that. I have got it to read to 1321 on a snow bank ans 1284 on a tree. Most RF's are only reliable at 1/2 of their range or less. The Leica is the only one I have seen that will read reliably near its advertised range and is the only RF I would recommend to anyone.

    On the leica the 1600 does not have angle compensation it does give u a degree of angle then u can calculate it or use your mildot master to get the true yardage the 1600 b does have angle compensation in it and also has a ballistic program in it so plug in the ballistics of your rifle and it will give you turret come ups if I'm not mistaken. It would be the same set up as wood ticks but his are the binos but same program in it. Wood tick have u used the ballistics in yours yet? I was going to get the geovids b's but since the angle compensator wouldn't start angle inclination till 100 yards I just went with the Swarovski el non range finding.

    Several years ago I dropped a pair of demo Geovid's 10x42 NON HD's (purchased through cameraland) that I had for about 3 years and broke the eye piece. I sent them in for repair and told the part that they needed to repair was on back order for about 10-12 weeks, I said that was not an option. I had an elk hunt in 6 weeks that took me 14 years to draw the tag, 3 days later I had a brand new pair of 10x42 HD's on my door step with a note in the box saying "hopefully the new HD's we came out with this year will help you on your elk hunt!"

    I'm sold for life on Leica after that!!!
