the only advise, i can give, is when you by a range finder, is you get what you pay for. I like the bushnell finders with the ARC. this gives you true shooting distance , so if you are in a tree stand and a deer is at say 32 yards according to line of site distance read, but the range finder will also at the same time tell you to aim like it is at 23 yards due to angle . price ranges from $299 to $320 from cabelas or bass pro for the 1000 yard arc model. this model works from 5 yards to 1000 yards. I own the 1500 yard model because I shoot longer distance at prairie dogs and other varments, plus works great for big game like deer so i just bought this model, but it ranges from 5 yrds out to 1500 yards. also remember that ranger finders may say they range 800 yards, but it will range a deer at only 400 yrd's., a tree ay 650 yrd's, and reflective target at 800 yards. the 1500 model I just got range's deer at 1000 yrd, a tree at 1300 yrd and a reflective target at 1500 yard's. do your research before buying.
