I was out early this morning, hoping for a coyote. A glorious morning it was. I had deer all over me, Owls hooting, pigs squealing (somewhere), and there was the coyote. He was out there a ways, so I grabbed the Nikon 600 rangefinder, which seems to max out at about 400 yards, and I could not range the coyote. he stood still, with the sunlight on him, and he seemed to glow in the morning light. Big chest. Heavy fur. Perfect for the shot that I didnít take. Ok...thatís enough of that rangefinder. Iím getting a new one. Today. I donít need to range 1000 yards. I need a RF that will honestly read a coyote or mud covered hog to 600 yards. What will get me there without a price that would not kill my plans for that VX5?

I just ordered the sig kilo 1250, from Amazon, for $250. Nice price. Good reviews. Should be good for deer and coyote to at least 500 yards, which is all I really need.

I will go the 1250 yards it claims, in the right lughting. The glass ain't that great, but the laser is very fast, and very accurate.

If itíll give me accurate and fast ranging out to 500 or 550, I wonít care if the glass isnít the absolute best. All I needed this morning was the range on that standing coyote. I was gonna dial the turret and send a bullet. Ooooooo, I hated to let him walk. I should have replaced that old Nikon RF years ago. Donít know why I didnít. Nobodyís fault but mine.

Just told the wife to get me that new VX5 scope for Christmas. Donít really need it, but I do want it.

550 yards is a piece of cake for that laser.

I have the 1250. I ranged a horse across from my dad's pasture at 946 yards, 3 times in a row.

Coyotes are the worst. It is forbidden to kill them in some places, but I don't really care. They are not afraid of anything and they just come and kill my farm animals. They never stop and I only thing that helped was me starting killing them. What really helped me was my laser rangefinder. I enjoy hunting with it because it helps me a lot with long range shots. I have no problems with coyotes anymore and I really love my life without them. You can check the ATN equipment on the website they have some really good stuff.

Wow! This is an old one. Let me update. I was not impressed with the Sig Kilo 1250 RF, so I returned it and replaced it with a Leica 2000B. And I am very happy with the Leica. I guess I’ve had it 2 years or more. No complaints at all.
