    i'd assume it has to be a company that already has a rangefinder in production as well as glass/optics gear. i can't imagine SIG has done all the tech development and production as well.

    I have a Leica 2000-b. I really like it, except when the unit stop giving you drop info past 800 yards , as they assume that the shot are becoming unethical . At least a good phone app could probably take over from there. And it can still range close to the 2000 yards.
    But as said above, 800 yards is probably fare enough to take a shot at a deer.

    I also have a Sig Sauer kilo 2000. Have ranged a tree beyond 2000y with it. You are welcome to borrow it @TianBotha and see if it suits you.

    That's an amazing offer, will have to plan a hunting trip and then I'll let you know if it suits, wouldn't want to clash with any of your trips
    Thanks appreciate it!

    I'm a tad laid up at the moment and won't be on any trips for some time. Good to grab and play with it so you are familiar with it.
