I'll add that, even though your max is 400 yards, if the animal is outside the rangefinder's range you take the chance of getting a "believable" false signal off closer vegetation or ground. That happened to me with a cheaper rangefinder - After getting no readings I finally got one saying it was 360 yards. In reality I was well over 400 yards away and my shot was so low it blew out both knees. Luckily I got it with follow-up shots.If you can spend about $350 I'd recommend the Sig Kilo 3K rangefinder. Even though you don't plan on shooting long range I think you want a rangefinder with good long range capabilities. If the deer is still way too far, it's nice to know the distance and then range a ridge, rocks, trees, etc knowing that if you can get to that location it's a doable shot.
Any recommendations for a Range Finder. $300.00 Budget. I am not a long range shooter. 400 yards or less. This is for Colorado Elk Rifle season. Thank You
that’s spot on.Well I don’t know what you are using for a Rifle Caliber but 400 yards is not very far you could use your rifle scope. Cut a 2x4 38 inches then check your scope at different ranges against crosshairs and what power setting brackets it at different yardages.
Does that do angle compensation? (I have it on my Leupold bow range-finder…want the same with a rifle version…)This has been working very nicely for me out to about 600 yards so far.
