    Lupy 1200 tbr rangefinder issues

    I have been testing out the above mentioned rangefinder over the last day or two.
    Got it set up to show tbr and tell me how much moa adjustment is required when using the 300 wm.
    The unit gives me repeatable distances, so guessing it is ranging correctly, but once the distance is beyond around 700 yds, it will only tell me the LOS distance, without giving the required moa adjustment ( or holdover etc)
    What am I doing wrong ?

    Maybe its this as stated on their trouble shooting guide .
    If in TBR for rifles, TBR output will not display past 800 yards. Line of sight distance will appear below the aiming reticle. thats for older models

    Its about as far as they can give fairly accurate data without useing actual velocitys, bc and atmospherics.

    If it's not being used with a preset load it will give you TBR out as far as it can range, I just use mine like that and use strelok to do the rest

    Not interested in using a phone based app unless I really have to. The reason I bought this model was to cut out the farting around. Point press and dial I thought.
    Oh well. Seems that Leupold are good at marketing

    Stop being a lazy guy. Use the rangefinder for ranging. Make a print out if you don't want a phone app. TBH my 1200 only ranges to about 7-800 anyway.

    Mine ranges ok. Best so far was gongs at 1178 yards. I don't get that if it can range to that distance, but cant calculate holdover etc. It does show the angle of incline, and already has the calibre details so it cant be rocket surgery

    It is rocket surgery or at least science.

    Past about 600y all the assumptions and guestimates catch up and it just doesnt work anymore.
    Thats why there is apps and chronographs and bryan litzes confirmed bcs and hand held weatherstations.

    There is a reason it doesnt go past 700.

    Bullshit in = bullshit out.

    I don't have a huge problem with the rangefinder acting as it does personally, as my shooting is unlikely to ever go beyond 600 on game. Would be a nice feature to have when gong shooting though.
    If an app on a $100 phone can work it all out, I reckon an $800 gadget should do too.
    Such a limited capability should be mentioned by Leupold in my humble opinion.

    Leica has a speel in their manual for the 1600 about not providing it past x range for safety reasons.

    I agree that you should be printing it off and checking it against real life before even thinking about trying to bowl something at 600+

    Depends on if you are shooting at targets or live game at that range.
