Didn't work as advertised

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on December 5, 2013
This is what they don't tell you online that's printed on the back of the box.
Reflective 5 - 1000
Tree 5 - 650
Deer 5 - 325

I took this to Piru range 12/04 to test out as they have marked distances up to 1000 yards and this worked up to 600. It would not give a reading beyond that even when aimed at the side of the mountain and giant boulders.
I plan on returning this.
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Doesn't read out that far...
Would recommend: No

Great Range Finder at excellent price

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 8, 2013
Great range finder that offers hunters the flexibility to use with multiple different hunt types (archery and rifle). Even has a setting to compensate for hand loads. Optics planet beat all other vendors on price and service. For optics I buy from no one else.
Pros: Easy to use, flexible features ...
Would recommend: Yes

Good sighting, easy orientation

Pros: Pocket size, ease of setup, magnification, light gathering...

Bushnell Scout 1000 ARC - ex Demo model

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 12, 2013
Great unit, having used a cheaper and less-ranged rangefinder previously. Standing on my deck I can range 623 metres on a tree, while standing. Compact size, not heavy in my opinion. Only quirk I found, (perhaps being a demo model/refurbished as on box) is the focus ring is almost out of adjustment to reach focus for my eye, and I have OK vision. I like the modes, ie scan - updates range as you move it without the need to repress button. Change from yard to metres etc.
Pros: Ability to change from imperial / metric measurements, x5 optical zoom, built in ballistic/angle adjustment, compact, included belt pouch, range, different ranging modes-scan etc
Cons: Manual/guide not included in box, my rifle ballistics not in unit, no lanyard included...
Would recommend: Yes

330 yards max

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on December 23, 2012
Good if you need a range finder for less than 300 yards. I can't get a reading even off of a flat rock face in the mountains.
Pros: easy to use and small
Cons: only works to 330 yards...
Would recommend: Yes
