    Best laser range finder for 1 mile shots

    My Sig 2000 is not enough range finder for the task. As we know, cut that 2000 in half for most applications. I probably need double that.

    My buddy has an $1800 unit. I’d like to keep it under $1k. I saw a 4000 unit from Vortex for $500, might be an option.

    Isllc, Thanks for clarifying.

    1800 yards. I had a Vectronix Terrapin that got stolen from my truck. Insurance covered half of it. I replaced it with a Vectronix PLRF-10.

    Thereís a 5k reflective and 1500 non-reflective rated Sig Kilo Bino set out there for around $1100 that Iíve heard good things about.

    I have managed to get the Kilo 2400 to work to about 17-1800 but itís not easy. Itís a PITA.

    The Vortex 4000 yard model has good glass clarity, but not sure if anyone at work has had a chance to try beyond a few hundred yards.

    I just got a Leupold RX2800 TBR/W and the reviews/videos I've seen online show it going out past 2800. I haven't had the chance to mess with it yet so I have no clue how it actually performs at that distance. Cost was pretty good. I got it directly from Leupold through their VIP program for $449

    thanks for the feedback guys. I have a big bonus check coming at year end and might bite the big bullet , we'll see. I check out the options provided. And yes my Buddy has the Vectronix unit. $$$$$

    The Vortex 4000 unit seems like a best bang for the buck RF. Im going to borrow my buddies Vectronix and see how much it KILLS ME, to not have it.

    Iím not sure if youíre looking to range targets or what but if so theirs a little trick Iíve used to get a significant amount more distance out of my range finders. I buy rolls of that yellow reflective tape and cover a piece of 4íx4í plywood with it or even put a few pieces on a 5 gallon bucket and leave it at your shooting position. As you go out and set long range targets range back to your shooting position. Iíve ranged out to 2000yds with my Sig 2200MR using this method. It also works well if you put some on your target stands or close by, then you can range from your shooting position. It wonít turn your unit into a Terrapin by any means but it will get you an extra 500-1000yds for a basic range finder.
