    I'm looking to get myself a rangefinder. Looking at these two:
    1) Nikon Rifle Hunter 1000 6x21
    2) Leupold RX-1000 TBR

    For those who have experience with anyone/both of these what did you think about them good and bad.

    I'm leaning towards the Nikon; however, like to get some feed back first.

    Any other suggestion on rangefinders and why.

    Thanks all

    Ive got a leupold supposedly it ranges to 1000 yards but i cant get a return on real world objects unless its pretty huge at that distance. Practical usage most commercial models 600 ish is about it.

    Get one with good optical clarity and is easy for you to use. Other than that in my limited experience they are pretty much identical

    I have a Nikon that will range to 1000 on big objects, it is an 800 yd model. It will range trees out to 500 yds well.
