    Leica 1600-B?

    Interested in hearing from people who have one of these and what you think of it?
    I need a new rangefinder capable of ranging animals to about 1000m.
    I already have a pair of Swaro EL 10x32 binoculars that I really like, so probably won't go the rangefinder binocular route, though I haven't totally ruled this option out yet.
    A True ballistic range function on whatever unit I get is a must, but I'm open to other suggestions around the same price as the Leica.

    Fantastic rangefinder. Ranges out to 1800yds on trees with a steady rest and deer out to 1300yds easy. I don't use the ballistic program but I do use the built in angle and pressure reader

    It's not that bad, I think that extra size is
    More than made up for buy being able to use it in the rain and fog.
    Lecia not at all in the rain or fog.

    I've been considering the G7 BR2 but haven't had chance to use one yet.
    I can get the Leica for about $1100 so the BR7 is quite a jump up in price.
    The Leica is nice and compact too which is a bonus!
