Went out for a mooch yesterday and my trusted Leica RF had stopped working.  Thankfully it was just a dead battery and all is well with the world again.

I have however, started to wonder (As I've had my RF a number of years now) when I will need to replace it and what is out there?  I would like a vectronix but budgets wont stretch that far.  Are Leica still the best buy?   

Do they now compensate for angled shots?

I have owned Sig 2000....not impressed by ranging or size of reticle / beam in the field.

Have bought the Leica 2700 recently and seems far superior BUT yet to test it on semi-reflective steels etc .

Leica does slope angle calcs and gives temp, station pressure and slope angle which are useful but I doubt I will use its ballistic table facility.

I have a zeiss prf which I really like, I also have leica geovids which I also really like and are also very good and kill two birds with one stone, the zeiss ranges just as well as the much more expensive leica bino's

I have the PLRF 10's which are perfect but wanted to get a smaller unit to use mainly with Air Rifle and rimfire ...... This where my mistake started , I then thought of going for a higher spec and getting somthing that could double up for my other rifles if ever needed to travel light which looking back I've never done in my life .

Staying small i went with the Sig 2200 and boy was i underwhelmed with it . I won't go as far as to say rubbish as after the PLRF's it's hard to know what to expect but i ought to have bought £150 worth and stuck to using it with the pneumatics !

I can confirm the 1600b has degrees of shot a the touch of a button , 9 or 10 º @ 200 can move your impact 1" high or low . So its worth getting a replacement with that sort of feature . I plug the data in to streloc pro but then that even compensate for incline  . But if your phone dies and you only have std LRF your abit buggered on longer shots . I keep a cosine chart in my bag with dope chart so i can make a calculation if needed . But honestly the 1600b never lets me down and pings crows out to a long way - i love it .... atb

Look at this off  AccurateShooter Daily Forum:  Nikon have just released two new models and at face value, they seem definitely worth considering.

I've not done much research but dont some binos work on a grid system as opposed a laser?

If they're as good as he's saying Chris they are definitely worth more than a passing glance thanks

I have a new Sig 2400ABS.

Only used it a few times but very impressed so far ranged a pony today at Millpool Ranges at 1200yds.

Plus having Applied Ballistics built in is great.
