    OK we've tested our Simmons rangefinder. And here it is against my like Edisto. While calculate that out comes to fifty-seven point eight three yards. This came up to 58 they said of course. This thing doesn't do fractions. Or decimals so one thing it does power down very quickly so. Irun outside take a shot but. Imight get back in here it's its already powered down. Iguess I'll make the make. This thing last longer. And here's what my disco came up with. And so far at least. It modest ranges this thing seems to be right on the money. Ishot a couple of these. All seems to be within plus. Or minus a yard which is damn sure going to be accurate enough for your Bo pistol. Or rifle I think a lot of strange is like 'fuck yards probably about. What it's a lot of that perception. We had a gun range inside of a tree row. Everybody swore that was 400 yards. It wasn't it was only a hundred but having everything in.

    That tree row and what's the target frame way down there. You know it's really three percent law. You know wait it's our first quick test of the Simmons tilt intelligence 600 rangefinders. And so far I'm happy. Now I'm going to go up find me a little lanyard put on there. This is like okay but. Ithink I'm gonna take a shot. Some Kydex you know I'm gonna take a shot at making a case for this it's electronic, so I'm not sure. How much of that heat. Ican expand its plastic I'm not sure. How much heat I can expose to might be able to insulate a little bit tape. Something or I might have to make model in case we're gonna give it a shot.

    What's going on guys I'm John. Another product review for you today we're looking at the Ranger 1500 range finder by vortex let. Me break this video down for you real quick we're going to unbox. It we're going to physically look at. And then I'm going to field-test the thing we're going to look at durability accuracy distance capabilities we're going to check out. It does in low-light. And then I'm going to wrap. It up with pros cons. Where to get how much. It costs and that's. It so here we go okay the vortex Ranger 1500 is still in the box let's check. It out inside we've got a soft sided case with a rangefinder in. That aside also a little cheat card here for a slope. And drop got the manual got a allen wrench the neck lanyard. One lithium cr2 battery. Ithink that's it alright lets's take a look at. This thing it's really pretty small 39 inches long 3 inches wide. And it's only 7 point 7 ounces you'll notice there's a rubber coating on. It green keeps. It a little bit more durable. And actually gives you a better grip on the thing the lenses are fully multi-coated the front. You have the 22 millimeter objective lens.

    This rangefinder has a magnification of 6. We look on the back you'll see the eye cup here. This is actually you manually focus. This rangefinder below that's. Where the battery goes let's throw. That in quick just grab a coin drop the battery in a couple other things. If you're going to put the lanyard on. You can see there's a couple little holes here. And that's where the neck lanyard goes right there. And on the side there's a utility clip so. You want to put this on your pack. You want to put it in your pocket your belt um that's. What that's for and. You can actually use the eleanor wrench. Ishowed you can take. You can flip it to the other side depending on. If you're right or left-handed. You don't like you can just pull. It rights off on the bottom there's the tripod socket. You want to use this thing with the tripod. And then on the top pretty simple there's just two buttons the.

    One closest to your. Isays measure the one further from your is menu. This rangefinder has. All rings that seal the product against moisture so essentially it's waterproof it's also fogged proof alright. You have the battery in to turn. You have to do is hit the measure button. Once in the display will pop up I'm going to show. You the display right. Now it's not a great picture but kind of gives. You an idea once the display is showing you just have to hit the measure button the second time. That will give you your basic measurement so. Once to turn once to measure that's. This rangefinder also has a scan mode so instead of. Once to turn it wants to take a measurement. You can do once to turn. And then hold the measure button down. What you can do is just scan.

    Everything the rangefinder hits. It will continually give. You updated distances as far as getting into the menu. And changing some of the settings. That kept it pretty simple so the second button here furthest from your eye is the menu button. What you do is hold. It down for 4 seconds 1 2 3 4. And then you're going to be in the menu mode. And there's only really three options of things. You can change the first. You can change it from meters to yards. Or yards to meters the second thing you can do is change from HCD mode which is their angle compensating mode to the l OS mode which is just the line-of-sight mode. And the third thing you can do is just change the brightness of the display there's three different brightness es so there. You go that's the physical rundown of. This rangefinder we also just went through the basics of functionality we're going to get into.

    Some of those a little bit. We field test the product the first thing I looked at was the waterproof claim. What I did was submerged. This rangefinder underwater multiple times. It at the beginning of the field test. Iwanted to see it would crap out on. Me right away something would happen as the field testing went on but. You know what it checked out okay. That being said I wouldn't take. This thing scuba diving on your next trip to the Caribbean but. It gets wet in field. Iwouldn't sweat it the next thing I did was checked out the anti-fog properties. This thing is purged with nitrogen. It has the waterproof. All rings so no moisture is supposed to get inside of.

    What I did was I wanted to shake. It up a little bit and go from extreme cold to warm back to cold so. This thing in the freezer. Ihad no issue whatsoever with internal fall game. Now don't be confused. These companies say anti-fog. It means internal fogging not external fogging like the fog. You get on the outside of the glass. You breathe on you go from warm to cold. Something like I did get a little bit of fog on the glass doing. That as with all optics but. What they're talking about here is the internal fogging no issues whatsoever ok guys before. Itest out the distance in the accuracy it's important for you to know. That vortex advertises. This range finder has distance capabilities for non-reflective targets at 750 yards. And reflective targets at 1500 yards in. This works at angles is extreme as plus. Or minus 60 degrees so. Istarted small looking at basic accuracy. Ipulled the tape I took readings at 50 yards 40 yards 30 20 10.

    And 9 yards every reading was spot-on including the 10 yards but. Idropped down to 9 yards no reading whatsoever the next thing I wanted to do was test out the distance capabilities so. Irecruited the team an. We found ourselves a better vantage point. We started pumping some distances out measurements can be taken two different ways let's use. This tree as an example the first. One is the L OS or line-of-sight mode. When you're in the L o s mode think about a line going straight from your eyeball right to the tree. And the rangefinder gave. Is a distance of 18 yards in an angle of negative 29 degrees switch to HCD mode which is the horizontal component distance. What the rangefinder does is.

    It takes the line-of-sight measurement. And the angle it does the math. It gives you the true horizontal distance. If you're hunting from a tree stand. Some extreme elevations. This is the distance. That you're going to want to use. You take a shot in this scenario the tree had horizontal distance 15 yards. Me rattle off some other horizontal distances. We looked at the first object. We looked at was this well cap. We were unable to pick up in HCD reading and here's why in line-of-sight mode. We arranged it at 11 yards but. It had an extreme angle of negative 56 degrees so. You do the math that distance would have come in under 10 yards in HCD mode in. This range fighter doesn't pick up objects under 10 yards so here's the rule of thumb with. This product if you're close to an object but you're unable to pick up a distance. You can assume that it's under 10 yards next. This wheelbarrow at 29 yards the decoy at 123 yards.

    This road sign at 304 yards the shed at 5:17 the tree line at 9:36. This blue silo at 1435 yards. We went back and cross-referenced the distance with. Some satellite imagery. We found that the actual distance was. One thousand four hundred. And thirty-three yards which was only two yards off vortex claims a variance of plus. Or minus three yards at. Any object fifteen hundred yards away. And our two yards off was well within the margin of error next. We tried another silo but with no luck. We couldn't get a reading on the L o s mode. Or the HDD mode what we found out. We cross-referenced the satellite imagery again was.

    This silo was over eighteen hundred yards away so outside of the capabilities of. This product all right you're probably saying that's good. Everything but John. Idon't hunt silos I don't hunt wheelbarrows. Ihunt non-reflective soft targets like deer bear elk. Iwas wondering the same thing so. Iwent out recruited. Some friends to help. Me not only was I able to connect on multiple animals under 100 yards but. Iwas also able to connect on cows at five fifty-five six forties. And seven hundred and eleven yards the next thing I wanted to do was test. This product in a low light scenario so. Iset my decoy up at fifty-nine yards. Itook my first reading at sunset. Itook my second reading thirty minutes after sunset which typically is the end of shooting hours the evening. Idid the low-light testing was just a.

    Few days after the new moon so. Ididn't get much help from the moon as far as additional light. Iwas easily able to make out the decoy. And range it 10 minutes after shooting light 20 minutes after shooting light as. You can see I ran out of camera light but. Iwas still able to pick up the decoy. And range and then 30 minutes after shooting late again with no camera light. Iwas able to just pick up the white on the belly of the whitetail so. This thing had low light capabilities almost a full hour after sunset. Or a half an hour after legal shooting hours just a disclaimer don't hunt after legal shooting hours as. It is illegal but I just did. This to show how good. It worked in low-light the last thing I want to do is just touch on the scan mode again. What you can do is hold the measure button in. And just scan in everything the rangefinder hits it's going to continually keep pumping out distances for you.

    This works great in two different scenarios. One trying to pick up distances on really far away objects. It doesn't take much. That measure button to bump. It a little bit if it's on a tripod just hitting the button will bump. It enough you can miss a target completely at 12. Or 13 hundred yards. If you're in scan mode. You can keep hovering around. That object until you get a good reading the second scenario. You guys have all been there you're sitting in your stand you're trying to range multiple trees around your stand to get an idea. How far away everything is there's. One tree you've been trying to hit but every time. You range it you're hitting some of the branches. Or brush and foreground again. If you're in scan mode hold. That button down you can just hover until.

    You find that hole. It gives you a reading right through to. That tree you'll be good to go. All right I think that's. Everything so let's move on to pros cons. How much where to get the thing okay guys let's talk about the pros the distance is checked out fine the accuracy checked out fine the angle compensation seemed to work great. You guys saw we had no issues with water. Ireally like the fact. That the display offered three different brightness es depending on how dark. Or light it is outside the scan mode was a cool feature in the utility clip is. Something that's unique. That I'll be taking advantage of. This fall ok let's move over to cons the only possible issue. Ifound with this rangefinder is. If you're that really wants a rangefinder that's going to pick up objects less. That 10 yard mark you might want to look for something else otherwise. This rangefinder just checked out to be really solid ok guys I'm going to take.

    One step further if you're familiar with vortexes first range finder the Ranger 1000 after looking at countless reviews there were two things. That jumped off the page as potential negatives the first is customers weren't thrilled. You had to push the button three times to get reading they fixed. That with this new rangefinder the 1500. You only have to do. Once to turn once to get a measurement. And the second thing is. Some people said the Ranger 1000 had a slower processor speed meaning you hit the button. You wait a little bit. And then you get your distance. Ihad no problems field testing the range of 1500. Ihit the button immediately got a distance no issues there. One of the limitations of. This video was I didn't look at battery life whatsoever the good thing about. When you're looking through the display on the rangefinder. It actually has a battery meter so. You guys can always see. What the battery life is on the rangefinder.

    If for some reason this thing you know runs out of battery two. Or three months down the road I'll put a comment below. This video to let you guys know. That hey the battery didn't hold up alright so. Where do how much does. It cost a good thing to do would be to go over to Vortex's website I'm going to leave the link below. This video in the information it's always a good place to start but about four hundred. And eighty dollars and I've seen. It at Midway USA online Cabala's Bass Pro Shop Sportsman's Warehouse so. You can get it pretty much anywhere. You guys have local sports shops. That carry any of the vortex optics. They can get it for you to the last thing. Ido want to touch on is the warranty. That vortex has I usually don't talk about warranties. Unless it's a really good. This is a really good.

    One so basically their VIP warranty says. If it's got the vortex name on. It no receipts no registrations. Something goes wrong with. It to them, and they're going to take care of. It hurts to lay out a lot of money for optics. Any optics not just. That kind of warranty to back. You can feel pretty good about making the one-time purchase. All right guys that's. You liked the video make sure. You subscribe to the antlers core dot-com YouTube channel hit. That little red subscribe button we've been pumping out a video every two weeks for about the last seven months. And I'm going to take. One step further I'm going to give. You the $000 it costs to subscribe to my channel otherwise keep an eye out for my next video we'll see.

    You spend a lot of time on the range as. Whether it's a site in a new rifle. You just want to spend the afternoon shooting at. Some targets or you're a hunter. You spend a lot of time out in the field pursuing game. One important accessory. You should always have with. You is a good quality rangefinder hey guys its Jerry. Once again here at hilltop firearms training center in Dover Tennessee. And today we're going to be looking at the loopholed rx 650 the Arctic 615 really easy to use. One button power is an omen. And allows you to change between modes so. If you're accustomed to ranging targets. And meters you prefer yards. You can change it out really easy fully multi-coated optic with a six time magnification so. You bring it up range your target that's gonna bring. That image in six times closer. It makes a little bit easier to range the actual object.

    That you're trying to get the distance on let's take a closer look at. Some other features we'll do a little table-top. And I'll just kind of explain. It works with living so let's talk about reflective targets as. You can see we have plywood backers way out there. We go out there we staple our targets up. That would be known as a reflective target. It is a clean smooth unobstructed surface. Now the laser rangefinder is going to see. That object say a little bit different. Then an inanimate object such as a tree you're gonna get your signal you're going to get your range but. It will look at it slightly different.

    It is a difference in its texture a. Few other things that can actually affect. It would be a shiny surface is highly reflective. And easier to range. Than say a dull surface think of a black roof. You have a black roof a lot of the laser as. That roof is going to be absorbed into. Whereas such as a surface such as. This it's actually going to reflect back off of. It quicker now think of. It as in perspective with game. If you're in the woods. You see a deer the deer has a hide. That their game coat is like a light color like tan is going to be much. More reflective than say a dark colored animal such as a bear. Because a lot of the surface. That the light of the laser is actually reflecting off of is going to be absorbed in. Some fur so it's really interesting how. That works lighting conditions haze rain fog other things going on in the environment can affect the lasers accuracy but.

    That is with any piece of equipment such as a laser rangefinder okay guys so quickly. More time and explain. How to change between yard. Or meter mode simply with the unit in the powered off position simply depress the button here on the top for approximately 10 seconds after which. You will be able to toggle from yards to meters. Or vice versa you figure out which. You want or the power button so pretty quick. Ihave mine set for yardage but. Iknow a lot of shooters. That come up here do prefer the meters so. You have a choice once again. You do have the ocular adjustment for the clarity depending on your vision really well-made. Ijust like the simplicity of. If you're out there hunting the last thing you need is. Some other piece of complicated gear simply bring the thing up their range. It releases the button there. You got your yards now here's.

    Something that's really cool about. This the design of this oh wow say. You have let's say you're out hunting you spotted tears across a field. And the deer is moving hold the power button down on the object. And move along with. It will continue to range as the range changes. That feature so you can range a moving object with. This not a lot of range finders have. That feature I also like the construction of the rangefinder itself it's got. This nice little rubber piece over the top gives. You a good positive grip. If it's a it's raining or your hands are quite slippery total vocal adjustment here four different eyes of course. You know depending on your vision. It is powered by one single battery.

    It comes out quite easy but you've got. This little flip up cap the last. Iwas using was quite difficult it's powered by. One of the CR two batteries very commonly used in a lot of cameras really nicely designed. Iknow it's the little details. That sometimes it kind of gets to. This is cool because after. You snug it down then just flip. And you're good to go that's actually kind of cool you'll also notice a little area here. You can attach a lanyard to which. Iwould prefer to have a lanyard on. It in case I was to drop. You could hang it around your neck. And just simply use. It as them you know the monocular. It is in fact alright guys as well. You get a really cool little carry case with the loop Holden's rx 650 well-made little design. It also allows you to attach. It to your range bag. If you're out in the field. You can attach some gear well design little carry case to keep the thing protected. What I really thought was just funny. And kind of neat and ingenious actually was.

    This a simple little onboard way of carrying a spare battery. Ijust that's one of the little details that's kind of stood out to. You least expect and the battery is dead. You can always keep a spare. One onboard according to the owner's manual the battery life is like 5000 actuations so. Each time you know. This thing approximately you're gonna get about 5000 times. You can use and range. Something which is pretty impressive I've had. Some other range finders in the past. It seemed like they really use the battery life quick. Ihave not had time to test. That but I do like. That feature alright guys. That wraps up our review of the loopholed rx 650 laser rangefinders. You are in the market for a high quality. Yet affordable laser rangefinder.

    That is full of features check out the link below it'll take. You to optics Planets website there is also a special coupon. You can put in to save. More money on an already great price guys. You for watching as always. We will see you soon on the range.

Or yards to meters the second thing you can do is change from HCD mode which is their angle compensating mode to the l OS mode which is just the line-of-sight mode. And the third thing you can do is just change the brightness of the display there's three different brightness es so there. You go that's the physical rundown of. This rangefinder we also just went through the basics of functionality we're going to get into.

    Some of those a little bit. We field test the product the first thing I looked at was the waterproof claim. What I did was submerged. This rangefinder underwater multiple times. It at the beginning of the field test. Iwanted to see it would crap out on. Me right away something would happen as the field testing went on but. You know what it checked out okay. That being said I wouldn't take. This thing scuba diving on your next trip to the Caribbean but. It gets wet in field. Iwouldn't sweat it the next thing I did was checked out the anti-fog properties. This thing is purged with nitrogen. It has the waterproof. All rings so no moisture is supposed to get inside of.

    What I did was I wanted to shake. It up a little bit and go from extreme cold to warm back to cold so. This thing in the freezer. Ihad no issue whatsoever with internal fall game. Now don't be confused. These companies say anti-fog. It means internal fogging not external fogging like the fog. You get on the outside of the glass. You breathe on you go from warm to cold. Something like I did get a little bit of fog on the glass doing. That as with all optics but. What they're talking about here is the internal fogging no issues whatsoever ok guys before. Itest out the distance in the accuracy it's important for you to know. That vortex advertises. This range finder has distance capabilities for non-reflective targets at 750 yards. And reflective targets at 1500 yards in. This works at angles is extreme as plus. Or minus 60 degrees so. Istarted small looking at basic accuracy. Ipulled the tape I took readings at 50 yards 40 yards 30 20 10.

    And 9 yards every reading was spot-on including the 10 yards but. Idropped down to 9 yards no reading whatsoever the next thing I wanted to do was test out the distance capabilities so. Irecruited the team an. We found ourselves a better vantage point. We started pumping some distances out measurements can be taken two different ways let's use. This tree as an example the first. One is the L OS or line-of-sight mode. When you're in the L o s mode think about a line going straight from your eyeball right to the tree. And the rangefinder gave. Is a distance of 18 yards in an angle of negative 29 degrees switch to HCD mode which is the horizontal component distance. What the rangefinder does is.

    It takes the line-of-sight measurement. And the angle it does the math. It gives you the true horizontal distance. If you're hunting from a tree stand. Some extreme elevations. This is the distance. That you're going to want to use. You take a shot in this scenario the tree had horizontal distance 15 yards. Me rattle off some other horizontal distances. We looked at the first object. We looked at was this well cap. We were unable to pick up in HCD reading and here's why in line-of-sight mode. We arranged it at 11 yards but. It had an extreme angle of negative 56 degrees so. You do the math that distance would have come in under 10 yards in HCD mode in. This range fighter doesn't pick up objects under 10 yards so here's the rule of thumb with. This product if you're close to an object but you're unable to pick up a distance. You can assume that it's under 10 yards next. This wheelbarrow at 29 yards the decoy at 123 yards.

    This road sign at 304 yards the shed at 5:17 the tree line at 9:36. This blue silo at 1435 yards. We went back and cross-referenced the distance with. Some satellite imagery. We found that the actual distance was. One thousand four hundred. And thirty-three yards which was only two yards off vortex claims a variance of plus. Or minus three yards at. Any object fifteen hundred yards away. And our two yards off was well within the margin of error next. We tried another silo but with no luck. We couldn't get a reading on the L o s mode. Or the HDD mode what we found out. We cross-referenced the satellite imagery again was.

    This silo was over eighteen hundred yards away so outside of the capabilities of. This product all right you're probably saying that's good. Everything but John. Idon't hunt silos I don't hunt wheelbarrows. Ihunt non-reflective soft targets like deer bear elk. Iwas wondering the same thing so. Iwent out recruited. Some friends to help. Me not only was I able to connect on multiple animals under 100 yards but. Iwas also able to connect on cows at five fifty-five six forties. And seven hundred and eleven yards the next thing I wanted to do was test. This product in a low light scenario so. Iset my decoy up at fifty-nine yards. Itook my first reading at sunset. Itook my second reading thirty minutes after sunset which typically is the end of shooting hours the evening. Idid the low-light testing was just a.

    Few days after the new moon so. Ididn't get much help from the moon as far as additional light. Iwas easily able to make out the decoy. And range it 10 minutes after shooting light 20 minutes after shooting light as. You can see I ran out of camera light but. Iwas still able to pick up the decoy. And range and then 30 minutes after shooting late again with no camera light. Iwas able to just pick up the white on the belly of the whitetail so. This thing had low light capabilities almost a full hour after sunset. Or a half an hour after legal shooting hours just a disclaimer don't hunt after legal shooting hours as. It is illegal but I just did. This to show how good. It worked in low-light the last thing I want to do is just touch on the scan mode again. What you can do is hold the measure button in. And just scan in everything the rangefinder hits it's going to continually keep pumping out distances for you.

    This works great in two different scenarios. One trying to pick up distances on really far away objects. It doesn't take much. That measure button to bump. It a little bit if it's on a tripod just hitting the button will bump. It enough you can miss a target completely at 12. Or 13 hundred yards. If you're in scan mode. You can keep hovering around. That object until you get a good reading the second scenario. You guys have all been there you're sitting in your stand you're trying to range multiple trees around your stand to get an idea. How far away everything is there's. One tree you've been trying to hit but every time. You range it you're hitting some of the branches. Or brush and foreground again. If you're in scan mode hold. That button down you can just hover until.

    You find that hole. It gives you a reading right through to. That tree you'll be good to go. All right I think that's. Everything so let's move on to pros cons. How much where to get the thing okay guys let's talk about the pros the distance is checked out fine the accuracy checked out fine the angle compensation seemed to work great. You guys saw we had no issues with water. Ireally like the fact. That the display offered three different brightness es depending on how dark. Or light it is outside the scan mode was a cool feature in the utility clip is. Something that's unique. That I'll be taking advantage of. This fall ok let's move over to cons the only possible issue. Ifound with this rangefinder is. If you're that really wants a rangefinder that's going to pick up objects less. That 10 yard mark you might want to look for something else otherwise. This rangefinder just checked out to be really solid ok guys I'm going to take.

    One step further if you're familiar with vortexes first range finder the Ranger 1000 after looking at countless reviews there were two things. That jumped off the page as potential negatives the first is customers weren't thrilled. You had to push the button three times to get reading they fixed. That with this new rangefinder the 1500. You only have to do. Once to turn once to get a measurement. And the second thing is. Some people said the Ranger 1000 had a slower processor speed meaning you hit the button. You wait a little bit. And then you get your distance. Ihad no problems field testing the range of 1500. Ihit the button immediately got a distance no issues there. One of the limitations of. This video was I didn't look at battery life whatsoever the good thing about. When you're looking through the display on the rangefinder. It actually has a battery meter so. You guys can always see. What the battery life is on the rangefinder.

    If for some reason this thing you know runs out of battery two. Or three months down the road I'll put a comment below. This video to let you guys know. That hey the battery didn't hold up alright so. Where do how much does. It cost a good thing to do would be to go over to Vortex's website I'm going to leave the link below. This video in the information it's always a good place to start but about four hundred. And eighty dollars and I've seen. It at Midway USA online Cabala's Bass Pro Shop Sportsman's Warehouse so. You can get it pretty much anywhere. You guys have local sports shops. That carry any of the vortex optics. They can get it for you to the last thing. Ido want to touch on is the warranty. That vortex has I usually don't talk about warranties. Unless it's a really good. This is a really good.

    One so basically their VIP warranty says. If it's got the vortex name on. It no receipts no registrations. Something goes wrong with. It to them, and they're going to take care of. It hurts to lay out a lot of money for optics. Any optics not just. That kind of warranty to back. You can feel pretty good about making the one-time purchase. All right guys that's. You liked the video make sure. You subscribe to the antlers core dot-com YouTube channel hit. That little red subscribe button we've been pumping out a video every two weeks for about the last seven months. And I'm going to take. One step further I'm going to give. You the $000 it costs to subscribe to my channel otherwise keep an eye out for my next video we'll see.

    sie hassen ihn möchte ich heute einen neuen entfernungsmesser vorstellen von der firma leica das neue modell 2700 ist jetzt hoffentlich immer sportlich sowie optisch den vorvorgänger vermindert das modell 1600 b aber damit eigentlich immer sehr zufrieden doch dann hat einige vorteile sportlich so wirklich was mich dazu bewegt haben, dass ich auf die neuen 2700 umsteigt nochmal äußerlich haben äußerlich ist das modell absolut gleich wie die Vorgängervarianten 1600 2003 ist kein unterschied mit Abstand von einem jahr 2100 von einem kartenslot für eine micro sd karten das ag später für mus das ganze gut ist sonst ist von der haptik vom aufbau unterschied feststellbar seien jetzt die vorteile von 2700 fangen wir mal bei der laser beim integrierten laser muss der ein paar das mit dem modell hat man die möglichkeit dass man ziele bis zu 2500 meter entfernung erkennen messen genau bestimmen kann also, dass euro probiert funktioniert wirklich einwandfrei die Vorgängervarianten bis maximal zwei kilometer messen beziehungsweise der 1600 bis ungefähr 15 kilometer abhängig von der zielgröße und von der effektivität der nächste große vorteil von 2700 er ist ein laserstrahl divergenz von 12 im rat Vorgängervarianten um zum beispiel 25 m das heißt der laserstrahl hat bei den alten modellen einfach mehr gestreut das heißt der kleinere kleiner das ziel auf größere distanz war schlicht und einfach nicht möglich, dass man das, ob sicher messen plant, dass man die eigenen ballistischen daten über die micro sd ins gerät ein sprung kann das heißen meine waffen wo sich massiv.

    And mail abonnieren das kann nicht alles einspielen das gerät hat richtig programm einbaut was noch dazu den luftdruck die temperatur und der schusswinkel berücksichtigt das heißt wenn jetzt zum beispiel von 850 meter knopfdruck zwei sekunden später automatisch mai-ausgabe die daten in hemmoor je, nachdem was man eingestellt hat oder in zentimeter was man überhalten muss und das macht gut in situationen wo man vielleicht ein bisschen flexibler sein muss oder schneller reagieren muss hat das einen entscheidenden vorteil dass das heißt ich bin einige schnelle muss man das auf ballistik der branche in moskau auswerten und in richtung knopfdruck 20 minuten später aber meine ballistischen daten und das funktioniert das ist das allerwichtigste ansonsten im grunde kann man, das gleiche wie die mit die vorgängermodelle wahrscheinlich habe das gerät jetzt seit einer woche in verwendung ich habe damit einiges probierte einiges getestet keine makros facebook was funktioniert einwandfrei absolute Kaufempfehlung von besser schießen

    We are at the glorious Lake Bar Umba. What a pristine glorious delightful autumn day it's very hot but it'll cool down soon enough we've come out here for two reasons number. One we'll go and fish in. And number two we are going to go. Some rangefinder e goodness. One of the few places. Icould find that's worth coming to. That actually has enough range to max out my little sig kilo 1250 rangefinders on a reflective target. That reflective target is the damn wall from about 1400 meters away it's got a nice Bank picked out picked. It out on Google Maps so hopefully we'll catch. Some fish, and we'll get our video back your toys All righty so I just had the boys drop. Me off over here on the other side of the dam, so I've got a nice clear shot over to the dam wall so let's unbox a little cig. What it's got to offer so as. You can see this is the cig kilo 1250 it's a six by twenty. Ididn't pay for nineteen for it but that's. What the sticker says but. Ithink 389 for it was on special at the time. And since then it has gone up just a little bit I've seen a. Few of them online at various shops for between five. And six hundred dollars sometimes. Even over six hundred dollars but at the time the price point represented a good sort of high value option.

    It wasn't the most expensive. It wasn't the cheapest. It has quite a bit of good solid range on. It says it will do up to sixteen hundred yards reflective trees at 950. And a soft target like a deer at 750 yards so for those of. Everybody else in the rest of the world. That uses the metric system 1600 yards is about fourteen hundred. And fifty meters or there abouts. And that's approximately. How far away from the dam wall. Now so hopefully that will work as a reflective target so. You open the box you get a nice little lanyard. You also get a cr2 battery. That comes with it but I've already put. This lovely little cig case.

    It has a belt loop on the back it's made from corduroy. Something like it feels like called Jura sig brand on the front. This lovely little pull tab instead of a press-stud. Or velcro so you can open. And close it nicely. And it's quiet which is good. And that's a good choice for a hunting optic so pulling it out. What it looks like we've got a mode button right here. We have the range button here. It is very simple to operate. You simply pick it up to your eye Lac so look through. And then put the reticle over. What you want and then click the range button. It will give you the range. That you're looking for it has. One mode for the range. You click and hold the mode button. It will bring up your options list. And you're able to set. It for direct range so from like from A to B in a straight line disregarding the angle of elevation.

    You can go ahead and use the angle modified range mode which is ideal for ballistics. You are say you're ranging the top of a mountain. Something like and you're aiming up it's going to give. You the exact relevant ballistic range not the point-to-point range so. It will modify its distance. It spits out for the angle. That will be affecting the round. That you're going to shoot so. Ireally like I think that's a great idea. And that's that's pretty much. Ialways leave I never really changed. It to point distance. Even when I'm using it for other stuff like measuring out paddocks at home. Whatever I still just use. That angle modified range. Because it's pretty much close enough it's. It does the job perfectly so that's. One of the things that you'll probably find when.

    You take the plunge. You buy a rangefinder you'll probably find. It a lot you would think for stuff. You wouldn't even expect so yeah it's great for measuring distances in. All forms not not just in a ballistic sense so let's jump over. And have a look, and we'll use my SuperDuper dodgy little scope cam setup. And hopefully that'll give. Is a nice clear picture. And we'll be able to arrange the wall at 1400 ish meters. And prove it can actually hit a reflective target. That far out because that's quite a long way for a rangefinder in. This price bracket to actually be shooting and oftentimes like I'm a bit of an optics knob. Ilook at Sig what if what have. They did and like. Idon't really they don't set my heart on fire. Ilook at their other optics. And stuff not not to say. That there's anything wrong with them. Because I've never actually used them but it's not the sort of it's not really a name. That comes too when. You think of high quality optics. If you're an optic snob.

    And you're used to liking night force. And March that sort of stuff. You probably wouldn't first thing. That sig could deliver your product. That you'd be happy with but. It represents say a really good high value option like it's not a high-end rangefinder by. Any means but it will almost certainly get the job done. You need it to do so let's have a look at the wall. How far away it is check. This out for a garbage home job piece of redneck engineering I didn't. Even finish it properly but. It pretties many works so. You know it's just an old phone case with. Some PVC on that I've rigged up so. It will hold the ocular lens of the rangefinder that's looking pretty good so that's.

    What the reticle looks like it's got as we're on angle modified range mode at the moment. That does is correct for the angle. That the in klonoa detects within the rangefinder so. It gives you a ballistic ally correct range instead of the point A to point B range so as. You can see just then we'll scope along there. One thousand one hundred. And sixty-eight point seven meters so that's a fairly large reflective target. We scoot on over and catch. One of these boats out the back there 511 I'll bet. You behind they're a little bit too fiddly for. That my apologies for my shaky hands. All right there we go there's a small child at 291 meters being towed in ASCII tube lovely day for us 481 meters away for. That boat on the other side of the dam so.

    You can do a 1600-meter long reflective target range. That means a very large reflective target at 1600 meters. Because it's a little bit wobbly as. You can see with these longer ranges with. If you've got shaky hands. Iwould think you would have to be a brain surgeon to get a small reflective target at 1600 meters so let's try. And range the trees we'll see. We get a nice close reading on. Some soft targets still too small still too far away. And there we go 536 meters to the trees on the other side 574 there 636 getting a little bit further. And looks like the boys in the boat over there. It was 759 meters so nearly 800 meters that's pretty good for what I would think is a non-reflective target being. That's the trees. All right that is a reflective target that's the boat. Something shiny on the boat so we've got. Some fairly long ranges on soft targets up to about 600 meters there. We go 663 meters so that's not bad at.

    All not bad at one of the good things about. This rangefinder is. You can hold like click. And drag it will spit out of. All bunch of numbers at. And then leave the closest number. It gets so you can scan across. Something like this turn the rangefinder on just by clicking the arrange button. And then scan left to right until. It gives you a reading and then just let go. You see the reading and bam 1174. All righty then, so I think that'll do. Us for our long-range reflective target test there so. That we've we've got over 1100 meters. Whatever it was out to the dam wall on a reflective target but to get. That far out you need a quite a large target. It obviously has to be reflective enough to bounce the beam. All the way back into the receiver so. It can tell how far away. It is so it does say. It will hit a reflective target at 1600 yards. It will do that but. It needs to be very reflective. And big enough for you to actually get.

    That handshake you would have been able to see through my scope cam there so. One of the things that really does bug. Me about it is on the bottom. Ifeel like there should be a tripod mount. Isuppose you could probably try. It into a smartphone bracket. Something like and mount. It on your tripod but. It is quite wide it's a lot well it's a lot it's not quite wide really but it's its a lot wider. Than a smartphone is. These days so the general sort of size probably wouldn't really work very well. Imay end up making something. That straps around the body of. And has the little pin in the bottom so. Ican hook it onto a tripod for longer ranges. If need be but that being said I'm probably never really going to be going out there. And shooting anything past a thousand yards anywhere other. Then the range for a target shooting so. Even then I still haven't gotten around to doing.

    Ican't see that really being an issue for me at shorter ranges like below 500 meters its very quick. And very easy on any target so. Or not it's reflective it's still going to give. You a good reading they don't really work very well in foggy times of day the fog seems to mess around with the beam. And prevent like a nice straight clean reflection coming back to. You but yeah as far as clear weather. Everything goes it's a great option so — to cover the pros we've got a good price point it's not it's not cheaper nasty doesn't feel cheap. And nasty at least it seems to give accurate ranges. Both long and short on hard. And soft targets and reflective targets at really long ranges but as far as cones go. Nothing on the bottom to hook. It up to a tripod so. You are shooting long distance targets it's gonna be a little tricky. And also one other gripe is the reticle isn't illuminated so it's just it's always black lucky saw in.

    That little video there are the higher class models like the kilo 2200. And 2400 and so on. And so forth as you go up in the price brackets. They do have illuminated reticles but yeah unfortunately the kilo 1250. And the kilo 850 I believe which is the model below. They just they're not illuminated so yeah. You want to play you gotta pay. All right so let's let's go fishing and then later on we'll go back. And look at some competitive options so I'll do't catch. Any fish the other boys did but. We still add a cracker overtime. And that's what really matters. Iguess plenty of beers plenty of good times. We didn't get too sunburned so happy with. That up here on the screen let's go into. Some competitive options for the Seas so first of. All on the left-hand side here we've got the Leopold rx 1600 I've used Leopold rx 800. Or an 850 I can't quite remember which.

    It was but I did like. It seemed like a good quality unit. And I'd be very surprised. If these any different as far as quality goes I'm very happy with. All of the Leopold stuff. That I've got in my gun safe so let's have a look at the stats comes in a couple of different colors black blaze orange. And mossy oak that mossy oak one's quite nice 1600 yard maximum range that'll be for a reflective target same as the sig six times zoom. And a fairly nice wide field of view good stuff. You like loot pulp stuff. And you're not a fan of sig for whatever reason. This would be a good option for you it's very similar in pretty much every way.

    Even including the price in Australia. You might end up paying a little bit. More for a Leopold but as. It stands at the moment that's pretty similar to the SIG's pricing ii competitive option is we're going to run with a vortex Ranger. Ihaven't used the vortex Rangers but. Ihave used a lot of other vortex gear. And I'm a big fan of vortex. They make for this whole sort of high-value target market. That we're looking at where. You can afford some reasonably good stuff but. You don't want to destroy your bank account for the next six months vortex is always a good option so a little bit. More poke than the sig. And the loophole goes. All the way out to 1800 yards same six times zoom. And same battery same. Everything but yeah. Iwould definitely look into. That would be a good option. You want to go with vortex third a relative newcomer to my little world. Ihaven't really know about Athlon optics for a great deal of time but my old man's got.

    One of these little Athlon range finders. And it's pretty good personally. Iprefer the CG over the Athlon but as. You look at the stats of the Athlon it's 1200 yards not 1600 buts. Everything else is pretty similar so. You are looking for a slightly cheaper option. You don't need to range a sixteen hundred yard reflective target. Ican't really think of a reason why I. Even need sixteen hundred yards of range to be completely honest but yeah the Athlon. Ithink is also a good option. And having used. It feels like a good quality product just as well as the sig does let's have a look at option number four. We finally have Bushnell. Ithink of Bushnell in the same vein. Ithink of Burris and indeed vortex as well. Ithink they're all sort of like. All have obviously different levels of their products. They market to different demographics but.

    When you're talking about sort of reasonably priced high value type stuff. Ithink Bushnell's always worth a look. They have a really good warranty just same as Leopold vortex. And Sig they're all the lifetime warranty type things. It seems to be the standard for this type of product nowadays, but we're going out to 1300 yards. And not quite as strong as the sig in the Leopold. And the vortex but still. Than enough to get you want to go different batteries taking a cr123 instead of a the other. One cr2 but still I would think. This would be a very good competitive option so look into. If you're interested in keeping it bushy so sorry about the audio not really sure. What was going on there I'm testing some new mics.

    And we've got a little bit of feedback over there but hopefully it's usable. You guys enjoyed watching the video as much as. Ienjoyed making it. You did gently tickle. That like button and subscribe. You want to see and I'll catch. You in the next one Cheers

    We are at the glorious Lake Bar Umba. What a pristine glorious delightful autumn day it's very hot but it'll cool down soon enough we've come out here for two reasons number. One we'll go and fish in. And number two we are going to go. Some rangefinder e goodness. One of the few places. Icould find that's worth coming to. That actually has enough range to max out my little sig kilo 1250 rangefinders on a reflective target. That reflective target is the damn wall from about 1400 meters away it's got a nice Bank picked out picked. It out on Google Maps so hopefully we'll catch. Some fish, and we'll get our video back your toys All righty so I just had the boys drop. Me off over here on the other side of the dam, so I've got a nice clear shot over to the dam wall so let's unbox a little cig. What it's got to offer so as. You can see this is the cig kilo 1250 it's a six by twenty. Ididn't pay for nineteen for it but that's. What the sticker says but. Ithink 389 for it was on special at the time. And since then it has gone up just a little bit I've seen a. Few of them online at various shops for between five. And six hundred dollars sometimes. Even over six hundred dollars but at the time the price point represented a good sort of high value option.

    It wasn't the most expensive. It wasn't the cheapest. It has quite a bit of good solid range on. It says it will do up to sixteen hundred yards reflective trees at 950. And a soft target like a deer at 750 yards so for those of. Everybody else in the rest of the world. That uses the metric system 1600 yards is about fourteen hundred. And fifty meters or there abouts. And that's approximately. How far away from the dam wall. Now so hopefully that will work as a reflective target so. You open the box you get a nice little lanyard. You also get a cr2 battery. That comes with it but I've already put. This lovely little cig case.

    It has a belt loop on the back it's made from corduroy. Something like it feels like called Jura sig brand on the front. This lovely little pull tab instead of a press-stud. Or velcro so you can open. And close it nicely. And it's quiet which is good. And that's a good choice for a hunting optic so pulling it out. What it looks like we've got a mode button right here. We have the range button here. It is very simple to operate. You simply pick it up to your eye Lac so look through. And then put the reticle over. What you want and then click the range button. It will give you the range. That you're looking for it has. One mode for the range. You click and hold the mode button. It will bring up your options list. And you're able to set. It for direct range so from like from A to B in a straight line disregarding the angle of elevation.

    You can go ahead and use the angle modified range mode which is ideal for ballistics. You are say you're ranging the top of a mountain. Something like and you're aiming up it's going to give. You the exact relevant ballistic range not the point-to-point range so. It will modify its distance. It spits out for the angle. That will be affecting the round. That you're going to shoot so. Ireally like I think that's a great idea. And that's that's pretty much. Ialways leave I never really changed. It to point distance. Even when I'm using it for other stuff like measuring out paddocks at home. Whatever I still just use. That angle modified range. Because it's pretty much close enough it's. It does the job perfectly so that's. One of the things that you'll probably find when.

    You take the plunge. You buy a rangefinder you'll probably find. It a lot you would think for stuff. You wouldn't even expect so yeah it's great for measuring distances in. All forms not not just in a ballistic sense so let's jump over. And have a look, and we'll use my SuperDuper dodgy little scope cam setup. And hopefully that'll give. Is a nice clear picture. And we'll be able to arrange the wall at 1400 ish meters. And prove it can actually hit a reflective target. That far out because that's quite a long way for a rangefinder in. This price bracket to actually be shooting and oftentimes like I'm a bit of an optics knob. Ilook at Sig what if what have. They did and like. Idon't really they don't set my heart on fire. Ilook at their other optics. And stuff not not to say. That there's anything wrong with them. Because I've never actually used them but it's not the sort of it's not really a name. That comes too when. You think of high quality optics. If you're an optic snob.

    And you're used to liking night force. And March that sort of stuff. You probably wouldn't first thing. That sig could deliver your product. That you'd be happy with but. It represents say a really good high value option like it's not a high-end rangefinder by. Any means but it will almost certainly get the job done. You need it to do so let's have a look at the wall. How far away it is check. This out for a garbage home job piece of redneck engineering I didn't. Even finish it properly but. It pretties many works so. You know it's just an old phone case with. Some PVC on that I've rigged up so. It will hold the ocular lens of the rangefinder that's looking pretty good so that's.

    What the reticle looks like it's got as we're on angle modified range mode at the moment. That does is correct for the angle. That the in klonoa detects within the rangefinder so. It gives you a ballistic ally correct range instead of the point A to point B range so as. You can see just then we'll scope along there. One thousand one hundred. And sixty-eight point seven meters so that's a fairly large reflective target. We scoot on over and catch. One of these boats out the back there 511 I'll bet. You behind they're a little bit too fiddly for. That my apologies for my shaky hands. All right there we go there's a small child at 291 meters being towed in ASCII tube lovely day for us 481 meters away for. That boat on the other side of the dam so.

    You can do a 1600-meter long reflective target range. That means a very large reflective target at 1600 meters. Because it's a little bit wobbly as. You can see with these longer ranges with. If you've got shaky hands. Iwould think you would have to be a brain surgeon to get a small reflective target at 1600 meters so let's try. And range the trees we'll see. We get a nice close reading on. Some soft targets still too small still too far away. And there we go 536 meters to the trees on the other side 574 there 636 getting a little bit further. And looks like the boys in the boat over there. It was 759 meters so nearly 800 meters that's pretty good for what I would think is a non-reflective target being. That's the trees. All right that is a reflective target that's the boat. Something shiny on the boat so we've got. Some fairly long ranges on soft targets up to about 600 meters there. We go 663 meters so that's not bad at.

    All not bad at one of the good things about. This rangefinder is. You can hold like click. And drag it will spit out of. All bunch of numbers at. And then leave the closest number. It gets so you can scan across. Something like this turn the rangefinder on just by clicking the arrange button. And then scan left to right until. It gives you a reading and then just let go. You see the reading and bam 1174. All righty then, so I think that'll do. Us for our long-range reflective target test there so. That we've we've got over 1100 meters. Whatever it was out to the dam wall on a reflective target but to get. That far out you need a quite a large target. It obviously has to be reflective enough to bounce the beam. All the way back into the receiver so. It can tell how far away. It is so it does say. It will hit a reflective target at 1600 yards. It will do that but. It needs to be very reflective. And big enough for you to actually get.

    That handshake you would have been able to see through my scope cam there so. One of the things that really does bug. Me about it is on the bottom. Ifeel like there should be a tripod mount. Isuppose you could probably try. It into a smartphone bracket. Something like and mount. It on your tripod but. It is quite wide it's a lot well it's a lot it's not quite wide really but it's its a lot wider. Than a smartphone is. These days so the general sort of size probably wouldn't really work very well. Imay end up making something. That straps around the body of. And has the little pin in the bottom so. Ican hook it onto a tripod for longer ranges. If need be but that being said I'm probably never really going to be going out there. And shooting anything past a thousand yards anywhere other. Then the range for a target shooting so. Even then I still haven't gotten around to doing.

    Ican't see that really being an issue for me at shorter ranges like below 500 meters its very quick. And very easy on any target so. Or not it's reflective it's still going to give. You a good reading they don't really work very well in foggy times of day the fog seems to mess around with the beam. And prevent like a nice straight clean reflection coming back to. You but yeah as far as clear weather. Everything goes it's a great option so — to cover the pros we've got a good price point it's not it's not cheaper nasty doesn't feel cheap. And nasty at least it seems to give accurate ranges. Both long and short on hard. And soft targets and reflective targets at really long ranges but as far as cones go. Nothing on the bottom to hook. It up to a tripod so. You are shooting long distance targets it's gonna be a little tricky. And also one other gripe is the reticle isn't illuminated so it's just it's always black lucky saw in.

    That little video there are the higher class models like the kilo 2200. And 2400 and so on. And so forth as you go up in the price brackets. They do have illuminated reticles but yeah unfortunately the kilo 1250. And the kilo 850 I believe which is the model below. They just they're not illuminated so yeah. You want to play you gotta pay. All right so let's let's go fishing and then later on we'll go back. And look at some competitive options so I'll do't catch. Any fish the other boys did but. We still add a cracker overtime. And that's what really matters. Iguess plenty of beers plenty of good times. We didn't get too sunburned so happy with. That up here on the screen let's go into. Some competitive options for the Seas so first of. All on the left-hand side here we've got the Leopold rx 1600 I've used Leopold rx 800. Or an 850 I can't quite remember which.

    It was but I did like. It seemed like a good quality unit. And I'd be very surprised. If these any different as far as quality goes I'm very happy with. All of the Leopold stuff. That I've got in my gun safe so let's have a look at the stats comes in a couple of different colors black blaze orange. And mossy oak that mossy oak one's quite nice 1600 yard maximum range that'll be for a reflective target same as the sig six times zoom. And a fairly nice wide field of view good stuff. You like loot pulp stuff. And you're not a fan of sig for whatever reason. This would be a good option for you it's very similar in pretty much every way.

    Even including the price in Australia. You might end up paying a little bit. More for a Leopold but as. It stands at the moment that's pretty similar to the SIG's pricing ii competitive option is we're going to run with a vortex Ranger. Ihaven't used the vortex Rangers but. Ihave used a lot of other vortex gear. And I'm a big fan of vortex. They make for this whole sort of high-value target market. That we're looking at where. You can afford some reasonably good stuff but. You don't want to destroy your bank account for the next six months vortex is always a good option so a little bit. More poke than the sig. And the loophole goes. All the way out to 1800 yards same six times zoom. And same battery same. Everything but yeah. Iwould definitely look into. That would be a good option. You want to go with vortex third a relative newcomer to my little world. Ihaven't really know about Athlon optics for a great deal of time but my old man's got.

    One of these little Athlon range finders. And it's pretty good personally. Iprefer the CG over the Athlon but as. You look at the stats of the Athlon it's 1200 yards not 1600 buts. Everything else is pretty similar so. You are looking for a slightly cheaper option. You don't need to range a sixteen hundred yard reflective target. Ican't really think of a reason why I. Even need sixteen hundred yards of range to be completely honest but yeah the Athlon. Ithink is also a good option. And having used. It feels like a good quality product just as well as the sig does let's have a look at option number four. We finally have Bushnell. Ithink of Bushnell in the same vein. Ithink of Burris and indeed vortex as well. Ithink they're all sort of like. All have obviously different levels of their products. They market to different demographics but.

    When you're talking about sort of reasonably priced high value type stuff. Ithink Bushnell's always worth a look. They have a really good warranty just same as Leopold vortex.

    Everybody thanks for joining us out here again today for another episode of the VSO gun channel rangefinders I've gotten to play with a lot of range finders over the course of my career in the firearms industry. Some of them were very good. Some of them not so good but the. That we're gonna look at here today. Ibelieve holds the. Most potential of all the ones. That we've looked at before. This product is the laser ballistics 1000 by a TN. You guys have seen the reviews. That we've done on a lot of ATMs products in the past. Some of them good some of them not so good but. This is their laser rangefinder. It has a lot of extra functionality as. We come to expect from a TN. They pack a bunch of widgets into their products. One has a lot of functionality. That other range finders just don't have. And that's what we're gonna be looking at here today. What I've brought out here today is. Some other range finders. Ijust kind of have lying around. And we're gonna test. This thing stacking up against. It, so I've got this like just junkie Bushnell. That I've had since like. Iwas in like fifth grade we'll try. And then what I consider to be the top-of-the-line rangefinder is the monarch 7i VR.

    We have full video on. This guy as well this is the. One with the camera stabilization technology in. It so like you can literally hold. It there and it's solid as a rock. Because just like cameras do. They have floating lenses. And stuff this digitally corrects the image. That you're seeing so very cool rangefinder full video on. One as well, so we're just gonna start off I'm going to take. Some measurements at the berm we're back here at the 400 ish mark. Ihave a target above the berm. And we'll just start out with a bush. What it gives us a reading ass. And maybe all right so we've been at. One for a minute even get. It to give me a reading at. This distance so there. You go on one the IVR I'm confident. One will get something here oh. That is so nice it's a rock solid. Iget my target at 420 420 nine yards. That is not angular leave corrected 420 nine yards okay the laser ballistics 1000 here.

    We go hi pieces little here. We go 431 430 431 so the ATN is in the ballpark about three yards of deviation from the monarch 7iv are here. Now remember one is stabilized. One is literally freehand so there could be. Some user error they're not so sure but. We are going to test to determine. How accurate that kind of deviation shouldn't matter for this particular test we're only about. You know 400 issue ARDS so. Ido apologize on this guy. One guys I don't know. What happened here but first cool thing. That we're gonna look at here on the ATN. Iwill roll this in so. You guys can see it's really bright out here today so. You probably wouldn't be able to see the screen anyway but I'll get screenshots.

    And show you guys there's an app. You can download that pairs with. This optic select your caliber I've already set. One up so I'll roll. This on screen when you're shooting two to three Remington today we're shooting Gnocchi ammunition. They were nice enough to send. Is a load of ammunition for this video, so I've got. All set up apply and put in our I've already got. All the elemental data. Everything and then. We get to this screen we're going to go ahead. And take our laser rangefinder see. Ican do I got too. Many things in my hands here we're gonna lays the target. We got 428 that time hit accept. This thing tells many clicks on. This scope to adjust so. This is telling me 32 clicks up on our scope. And we'll just we'll keep.

    That as is I'm gonna shoot. It from 0 just confirm. That we do in fact miss at. This distance with this 5 5 6 cars being here. We are hot here we go shooting with 0. One impact the berm low alright we'll shoot low as expected so. What we're gonna do is go ahead. And go up 32 clicks 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 alright so. That we've made our ballistic correction get a good solid stance here. And here we go we're gonna see. We can't put some rounds on. That steel no it's a little dusty here blowing all kinds of stuff. All over the place so the laser ballistics 1000. And the app got us on target at 430 yards. If I'm honest I didn't think.

    That was gonna work. Imean the concepts. You know pretty uniform across the board but. Iguessed it my bc. Idon't have the bc for the Gnocchi. This is the you know. Ijust started shooting their ammo a. Few weeks ago so I don't know. What the bc for that is so. Ijust kind of guessed at. And 223 BAC varies everything from. Everything I saw was. Everything from 020 to 027 so. Ikind of guessed right in the center. We made some hits, so I'm pretty happy with. That yeah it works. That app does it do a good job it's a pretty decent ballistics calculator alright enough of. This I'm gonna go get. Some other equipment to mount on top of. This gun and we'll be right back. Something that's even cooler to show. You guys okie dogie so as. You can see we've definitely switched around the kit a little bit. Ihave a fix to silencer to the end of. This thing and actually. Idon't know this point in time allowed talking about.

    This ounce I am it'll be on screen. If not then forget even mentioned. It we've also attached the X site to you've seen a review on. This particular site from 8 before I'll have a link in the description for. That I'm gonna go and power. This thing up right. Now but the reason this thing is on here is. This laser rangefinder can talk to. This site it can do a ballistic correction based on the data. You put into this into the site for your low data use the data from. This to do a ballistic correction for you for your elevations so let's see. If we're up we are up good just my focus here so. That we're all good. And I'm gonna be filming through the X site today so. You guys can see what I'm looking at. And we're gonna start out just as is shooting with no ballistic correction. And we'll see we do here. All right so we're clearly shooting low so. What I'm going to do is I'm going to turn on the ballistic calc on. This thing and I'm going to try. And film through the site to see.

    We can see the reticle jump on. This thing because it literally does. When it makes a correction. All right let's see. She worked it looks like the reticle has moved on screen, so I'm not sure. That was captured or not here. We go hmm that's odd yes my bad guys user error. Iforgot to put in the correct velocity. And the Exide here it set up for a 308. Iwas running through the settings really fast. Iforgot to put in the correct velocity so. We were shooting was over. That target I had the velocity input is like 2600 feet per second which is completely wrong so here. We run try this again with the correct velocity there. It is there all right so that's a little bit better. Now we've got the correct velocity in there the laser rangefinder was able to pair with the X site. Us on target at least reasonably on target there's a fair amount of wind today it's gusting it actually happens to be like nice and calm right in a second, but we've got a little bit of a storm rolling in over there that'll be here very shortly.

    This thing will not do the wind age correction for you to my knowledge. Nothing does the wind do correction for you that's. Something that the shooter has to know. How to do but it did do the elevation correction for us at least reasonably close. Ithink again this is not a military-grade piece of hardware by. Any means but what it does is demonstrate the technology. And the advancement of technology. Where we're headed so to. That effect there are lots of modes inside. This thing it does an angular correction. It has a fog mode that is supposed to cut through fog. It has the supposed ability to track the speed of a target. If it's moving toward. Or away from you not side-to-side. Anything I've not tested. Any of those modes this is literally just. Me throwing this stuff together. And running out here. And trying it out etienne asked. Me to field test it for them so that's that's.

    What we're doing now the. One thing I will say. Ithink of this thing in terms of laser rangefinder in general is concerned is a lot of times. You will laze for a long period of time then. You finally get a return answer on. Some of your like marginal quality to mid grade laser rangefinders. This thing is fast I mean it's just as fast as my Nikon IV are in the truck so. Imean I'm I'm pretty happy with its speed. And its accuracy as far as. This as far as its use as a laser rangefinder is concerned well.

    Alright guys welcome back to two for three outdoors my name is Josh tonight we're gonna take a look at the Sig Kahlo 1200 rangefinders. Ipicked this week from not just shooters supply. They had this on sale for $169. And got free shipping on. And so far it seems to be a pretty nice rangefinder its advertised. It ranges deer up to 600 yards trees to 700. And reflective targets to 16 out of the arms runs on a cr2 battery it's supposed to have really long battery life. It the actual size is very small. And compact it comes a little nice carrying case the box is very nice. It came in and an instruction manual there's two buttons on. One is the mode one is the range button battery goes here. It has an adjustable eyepiece. This darkens and lightens the LCD in there. Ifound the darkest setting is probably. You want it there're two modes of operation. This a line of sight. And an angled modified range line of sight is like. Whatever you see the distance is. This place the angle modified range is. When you're looking at a decline. Or an incline it just is adjusted for what the distance would be for a like. Isay a rifle if your line of sight was 500 yards looking down. That angle 30 degrees the holdover would have to be about for 433 yards that's the factory configuration.

    It comes in we're gonna leave. It we're on flat ground here so. It doesn't really matter it's also factory set to yards but. You can't change the meters tonight it's gonna be not really a. How to use it we're just gonna kind of show. Ihave a little camera here. It just right I can show. What I see, and we'll go out in the truck drive around. And range some things. Ihave ranged a very large building at 1400. Ibelieve 62 yards I've ranged combines grain cards at twelve thirteen hundred yards fence rows no problem at a thousand yards so. This seems to be pretty good it's really about. All there is to tell. You about and let's go out. And play with this a little bit. All right, so we're gonna range around here in the yard just a little bit. And across the road. And give you an idea. What this thing will do so. We have a sign there. That comes up 91 yards there's a dumpster that's approximately a hundred its range.

    That tree 35 we can also go to. These houses that are pretty far out there 359 yards get. This hey Belle 96 the corner of. That building is about 150 yards we'll go up. This was about 215 without building a big trees about 77 see I'm holding it. And we're standing no burning pile back there. And burn barrel is about 85 yards so let's go out in the truck. And take a look around we'll range. This a little farm there 669 to. That grain band 732 to. That shed 662 to that other shed eleven hundred. And thirty yards to. That fence row so it'll think. These fence rows up pretty good about 450 to. That fence row be nice. We can find more deer but. They was kind of in. Some tall weeds we can't find any deer will rain. Some cows the Sun starting to set so it's hard to get a little dark shit here's cow pasture those cows 123 yards there's. One up on the hill there.

    You had about 320 yards away so. It would definitely pick up a deer. That far we'll drive around. This a little bit more simply see. Anything else probably be a booger to edit. That Ike I guess really so there's. Some houses and sheds out there pretty good range 1246 yards 1197 to. That other on the woods out there 600 at the ten yards so like. This thing will reach out pretty good. He was setting up a range. You could probably park your truck at your shooting spa. And then you know set a target up out. You know a thousand twelve hundred yards. And range back off it here that's right they're about four hundred fifty-five yards away got a.

    More cows here get pretty dark here 135 yards. That one's about 80 88 got. That at about 140 and about 114 so like. You can see it's a pretty good rangefinder. It actually exceeds my expectation. Iwasn't expecting it to be. That good it picks up Finch rose. And stuff like that very well so it's getting pretty much dark. Now so we're gonna in. This video I don't know. How long the sale goes on for but for a hundred. And sixty-nine dollars. It seems like a pretty solid deal so thanks for watching, and we'll catch. You later

    You spend a lot of time on the range as. Whether it's a site in a new rifle. You just want to spend the afternoon shooting at. Some targets or you're a hunter. You spend a lot of time out in the field pursuing game. One important accessory. You should always have with. You is a good quality rangefinder hey guys its Jerry. Once again here at hilltop firearms training center in Dover Tennessee. And today we're going to be looking at the loopholed rx 650 the Arctic 615 really easy to use. One button power is an omen. And allows you to change between modes so. If you're accustomed to ranging targets. And meters you prefer yards. You can change it out really easy fully multi-coated optic with a six time magnification so. You bring it up range your target that's gonna bring. That image in six times closer. It makes a little bit easier to range the actual object.

    That you're trying to get the distance on let's take a closer look at. Some other features we'll do a little table-top. And I'll just kind of explain. It works with living so let's talk about reflective targets as. You can see we have plywood backers way out there. We go out there we staple our targets up. That would be known as a reflective target. It is a clean smooth unobstructed surface. Now the laser rangefinder is going to see. That object say a little bit different. Then an inanimate object such as a tree you're gonna get your signal you're going to get your range but. It will look at it slightly different.

    It is a difference in its texture a. Few other things that can actually affect. It would be a shiny surface is highly reflective. And easier to range. Than say a dull surface think of a black roof. You have a black roof a lot of the laser as. That roof is going to be absorbed into. Whereas such as a surface such as. This it's actually going to reflect back off of. It quicker now think of. It as in perspective with game. If you're in the woods. You see a deer the deer has a hide. That their game coat is like a light color like tan is going to be much. More reflective than say a dark colored animal such as a bear. Because a lot of the surface. That the light of the laser is actually reflecting off of is going to be absorbed in. Some fur so it's really interesting how. That works lighting conditions haze rain fog other things going on in the environment can affect the lasers accuracy but.

    That is with any piece of equipment such as a laser rangefinder okay guys so quickly. More time and explain. How to change between yard. Or meter mode simply with the unit in the powered off position simply depress the button here on the top for approximately 10 seconds after which. You will be able to toggle from yards to meters. Or vice versa you figure out which. You want or the power button so pretty quick. Ihave mine set for yardage but. Iknow a lot of shooters. That come up here do prefer the meters so. You have a choice once again. You do have the ocular adjustment for the clarity depending on your vision really well-made. Ijust like the simplicity of. If you're out there hunting the last thing you need is. Some other piece of complicated gear simply bring the thing up their range. It releases the button there. You got your yards now here's.

    Something that's really cool about. This the design of this oh wow say. You have let's say you're out hunting you spotted tears across a field. And the deer is moving hold the power button down on the object. And move along with. It will continue to range as the range changes. That feature so you can range a moving object with. This not a lot of range finders have. That feature I also like the construction of the rangefinder itself it's got. This nice little rubber piece over the top gives. You a good positive grip. If it's a it's raining or your hands are quite slippery total vocal adjustment here four different eyes of course. You know depending on your vision. It is powered by one single battery.

    It comes out quite easy but you've got. This little flip up cap the last. Iwas using was quite difficult it's powered by. One of the CR two batteries very commonly used in a lot of cameras really nicely designed. Iknow it's the little details. That sometimes it kind of gets to. This is cool because after. You snug it down then just flip. And you're good to go that's actually kind of cool you'll also notice a little area here. You can attach a lanyard to which. Iwould prefer to have a lanyard on. It in case I was to drop. You could hang it around your neck. And just simply use. It as them you know the monocular. It is in fact alright guys as well. You get a really cool little carry case with the loop Holden's rx 650 well-made little design. It also allows you to attach. It to your range bag. If you're out in the field. You can attach some gear well design little carry case to keep the thing protected. What I really thought was just funny. And kind of neat and ingenious actually was.

    This a simple little onboard way of carrying a spare battery. Ijust that's one of the little details that's kind of stood out to. You least expect and the battery is dead. You can always keep a spare. One onboard according to the owner's manual the battery life is like 5000 actuations so. Each time you know. This thing approximately you're gonna get about 5000 times. You can use and range. Something which is pretty impressive I've had. Some other range finders in the past. It seemed like they really use the battery life quick. Ihave not had time to test. That but I do like. That feature alright guys. That wraps up our review of the loopholed rx 650 laser rangefinders. You are in the market for a high quality. Yet affordable laser rangefinder.

    That is full of features check out the link below it'll take. You to optics Planets website there is also a special coupon. You can put in to save. More money on an already great price guys. You for watching as always. We will see you soon on the range.
