    SNDway range finders get pretty good reviews if you don't want to spend more than $300. I have used my father's one and distances are pretty equal to my Leopold rangefinder.

    Second the SNDway rangefinders ordered a 1500m one recently off AliExpress for around $200 including shipping. Have tested it pretty thoroughly and the readings always agree within a couple of meters to my GPS and to my friends Leica rangefinder. Also fairly reliably ranges out to 1500m off trees and other non reflective objects. Will easily range between 2-1000m very reliably. Only downside is the optics are noticeably worse than my friends Leica one but certainly adequate to find deer etc in and not bad considering its like an 8th of the price.

    Actually made a pretty extensive video review of it that I never quite got around to posting. I could put it together if anyone is interested.

    I use a Sndway. Last hunt ranged with it at 375yds, dialled the scope and hit exactly where I was aiming. When compared with a RF 4 times the price the optics were clearly better on the more expensive RF. The rangefinders ranged to within 3yds of each other out to 990m.

    I've got a Bushnell Yardage Pro 450, only goes up to 450m as the name suggests. It is about 10yrs old I think but it works and has only ever been used on a range.
    You can have for the sum of $28.00 which equals a dozen BRB Hazy cans + $5.00 P&P

    Let me know
