    Are they new, or new to you? There is nothing really techo about them. Look, press button, get the red target box up first then second press for range.
    What are you comparing them against?

    Watching thread with interest to see if there is any tips.
    Is there a best time of day to get further ranges? Like dusk or dawn or middle of the day in lots of sun?

    The best time to range things is when there is the least amount of sunlight

    Not to mention fog or rain either

    I know they are new, but you could try scratching Swarovski or Bushnell on to them and they might go better

    is the battery new in them? I notice the range at which I can get a reading reduces as the battery gets older. having a steady pair of hands also helps with getting a reading on longer distances.

    Nows that is a great idea

    I wonder if it would work with a Blaser 25-06 I know of.......could put Tikka on the side of it & then it might moa instead of twice that .....

    My blaser works well with all its barrels why would I give a rats ass about one that I have no control over, that doesn't shoot?
    Lieca RF binos are notoriously weak when it comes to ranging.........

    They are brand new and new to me using them my old range finder is aleica range master 800 I think it's got to be held very steady compared to the 800 have talked to supplier they say it's probably a slight movement thing on my behalf (didn't have that prob with 800s) but no prob if not all under warranty if needed .like I Said mite just have to get use to them and using in two hands and be steady but I wanted to see if there is a knack to it hence the thread cheers and everyone have a good Xmas

    I had to read the manual to know how to range something haha. I first used the red button and thought, 0, 30c, 1016 isn't a range haha
    VIVA LA HOWA
