    range finder good but not too spendy please

    As per heading I'm looking for a range finder,
    would be nice if it could do angle corrected measurement's as well as actual distance (excuse my terminology)
    ballistics calculation would be cool but not a game changer.
    what's out there don't want to spend heaps but also don't want junk that's no good.
    would be nice if it could range out to at least 800m

    I don't have a price range in mind but cheaper the better

    I have one and seems to be accurate to the yard when compared with Bushnell and Leupold units.
    Does not have TBR though

    I have a Sig kilo 2200 for sale does everything you want but not ballistic solution. To be fair unless your spending 2.5k the ballistic solutions are gobe shite anyway. I sold my Leica 1600b because it wouldn't give a solution past 500 yards.... anyway 650 for the sigs if your interested they are 1000-1200 new depending were you buy them.

    I have a Leica Rangemaster 1600R
    Used it once to get distances on my blocks and I honestly don't think I will use again
    Bought it in March 2018
    Does not do the Ballistic calculation - straight out Range finder
    You can have it for $650 - if you want to go to that level

    @chainsaw fill ya boots mate all yours.

    Thanks everyone I'm gonna sit on this as I'm conflicted on whether to go new or not and spendy or not.....thanks for the offers I'll ask again when I have done more research.
    So much more involved than I first imagined

    I bought one of those rangefinders. It seems to do everything it should, and read accurately out to 300m at the range, but I've never used a more expensive one so can't say how it compares.

    I got one that I can't fault off Aliexpress. Also can't fault the buying experience. Cost about $125 landed, less than 2wks delivery. Check out the SNDWAY-1000A. No need to pay anymore, used a Leica for a while, but would rather have this one and put the extra money into a decent scope.
