    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.
