Maximum range

Postby mdr5 on Tue Mar 13, 2007 4:00 am

Several rangefinders in your inventory note they can achieve a greater than "maximum" range with a highly reflective target.

Does anything you carry process beyond 2000yds? (assuming adequate line of sight and adequate light returned)

Thanks!

Hi

There is no maximum range listed for any LRF that translates into anything real out in the field. Most users, regardless of brand or model, target a larger, nearby object, when ranging on deer size targets beyond 300 yards. Of course, everything depends on the size and refelctivity of your target, but no, we do not offer a product that will range reliably on any target beyond 2000 yards.

clarification

Postby mdr5 on Tue Mar 13, 2007 3:01 pm

I will be using target optics that will reliably provide enough return energy (a large, high grade retroreflector) but if the processing in a given unit stops at an arbitrary range, it will not provide a number regardless of the signal.

At least one short range (labeled something between 400-800) notes that it will read a strong target out to 999 yds, and at least one 1500 yard model claims 1600 for an exceptional target. Opti-Logic, for one, has a hard cutoff at the unit's nominal range (a 1000yd unit stops at 1000yds).

Do you know if anything you carry continues the timing process past 2000yds?

Hi

Sorry, but no. Most likley choice would be Laser Tech, but I'd suggest visiting with one of their techs, directly at 1-800-280-6113
