Some of the range finders have a type of "true ballistic ranging", wherein the range given is based on range and angle of shot. I'm curious as to how this mechanism works on actual shooting.

I was able to play with the sig rangefinders at Shot Show. They seem to be quite nice and they may be worth looking into. Obviously it wasn't in field conditions and there's only so far you can see in the building, but the one seemingly thorough review I found seemed quite positive.

I have a Bushnell 1500 Elite that I have been very happy with. The one I got is one the Army supposedly issues out on a limited basis. Has a UCP patterned case and a big yellow laser warning sticker on it (How I know its really Army issue).

Lases out to steel plates at 600 yds with no issues.

also has a tripod thread hole on the bottom. Runs off a 9V battery. built well and has an easy menu to nagivgate from yds to meters.

brownells has it on sale for $279.99 which cheaper than expertcity!
So if you are a savant with computer and apps, this one might be for you.
I'm saving up for a smaller, more portable unit

Take a look at the SIG KILO 2400 model. It's a solid performer in its price range. They have other models if the 2400 is outside of your budget that are also excellent choices and lower in cost.

For most shooters, the SIG KILO series of LRFs will be more than adequate and are reasonably priced when it comes to LRFs. Anything that performs better than the SIG KILO series currently is in the Vectronix/$15k and up range.

I've had pretty good luck with the Bushnell 1 mile ARC. It's affordable (only $300) and I've used it to hit E type targets out to 960m.

Now that’s pretty cool. Basically turn your smart phone into a ballistic computer. High speed stuff there. I don’t think my Wife would agree I could afford it though.

I forgot to mention that the KILO 2400 has an onboard ballistic calculator (applied Ballistics), which aside from Field firing solutions and ColdBore ballistic calculators, is hard to beat when it comes to Ballistic computers.

Here are the complete specs:

https://store.appliedballisticsllc.c...oductCode=6001

Description
The KILO2400ABS is the world’s most advanced rangefinder featuring an embedded Applied Ballistics calculator, onboard environmental sensors and Bluetooth for synchronizing custom profiles with a free, downloadable ballistic app for your iOS or Android smartphone. Includes a tripod adapter, smartphone jack WindMETER, ballistic nylon Molle kit bag and nylon carry pouch, lanyard, 3 spare batteries, and SIG SAUER Tactical pen/stylus to get you up and running for long range precision target shooting and hunting.

The Sig Kilo 2400 ABS does not require a connection to the app to provide ballistic solutions. The app is only required for building and loading profiles on to the device. The Kilo 2400 operates completely on its own or when connected to the app. The choice is up to the operator. Further more, there is no limitation on the ballistic solution. While some range finders put a limit on how far they will provide firing solutions (500 yards, 1400 yards) the Kilo 2400 does not.

Features:
1. AB Ballistics Engine – Most accurate ballistic solver on the market. Trusted by professionals.
2. Gun Profile Management – Build, Edit, and Upload from the App to your device.
3. Multiple Profiles – Store up to 4 profiles on the device. 100 Profiles In App.
4. Ballistic Calibration – Muzzle Velocity and/or BC Calibration ability.
5. Custom Drag Models – AB was the first to develop a publically available system/library with Custom Drag Models. More accurate than G1/G7 BCs.
6. G1/G7 Tested Library – Users can choose CDM or G1/G7 when profile building.
7. Aerodynamic Jump, Spin Drift, & Coriolis Effect are all calculated in the system(Embedded sensors adjust for this in real time).
8. Muzzle Velocity Temp-Table – Ability to train for muzzle velocity shift with temperature shift.
9. Free App – Comes with a free app for managing/using the device.
10. LightWave™ DSP Technology – Fastest and longest distance rangefinder engine.
11. Scan Mode with HyperScan™ Technology – Refreshes at 4x per second with RangeLock™.
12. Live Feed from sensors – When connected to the app , the readings on each screen will live update and display in the app.
13. Lumatic™ OLED Display – Automatic brightness adjustment, or custom set brightness level.
14. Customizable Reticle – You can change the look of the reticle by adding/removing parts of the milling grid.
15. Wind Meter Included – WeatherFlow Audio Jack Meter included to get wind speed and direction or input the wind speed and direction manual.
16. Target Mode – First, Last or Best options.
17. AMR Mode – Angle Modified Range (Inclination) can be turned on/off.
18. LOS Mode – Line Of Sight (No Inclination Calculation Adjustment).
19. Target Speed and Direction – Input via the app for calculation into firing solution.
20. Sensor Override ability – You can override the current sensor readings and input your own parameters such as Temp, Pressure, Direction of Fire etc.
21. Metric Support.
22. Compact Form Factor.
24. Unique Housing/Color – Magnesium, Flat Dark Earth, with Applied Ballistics Medallion.
25. Performance – 25% Performance Improvement over the Sig Kilo 2000.
26. Adjustable Timeout – Adjust the timeout on the LRF from the app to 30(Default), 60, or 180 seconds.
