    Leica 2400-R EHR range info

    Does anyone have any firsthand experience of the 2400-R with the max range when in EHR mode?

    Iíve seen two conflicting max ranges given, one of 1200 yards and the other only 830-odd yards?

    With the latest 2400-R - I think EHR (equivalent horizontal range) is same with all Range Bino included and its around thats around 1100-1200 yards
    But I no guro on that Tech stuff but use the 2400-R (latest) and get out to 2000m+ in good conditions straight linear distance ranging
    They are a brilliant Ranger
    Got 2 next week here

    at that distance you dont want ehr you need true range then input the angle for your ballistic calc.

    I’ve already got a ballistic solver for drop at given ranges. But as Muka has noted, it needs the equivalent horizontal range to feed into it.

    if you use a ehr range of 1100 m instead of true range of say 1400 your windage will be out. All the elr and prs instructors advise not to use EHR.
