Rangefinders for 3-gun Limited shooter


Recommended Posts

Hi all

I’m a limited 3-gun shooter using a Vortex Spitfire. I dial elevations for each target. In local matches range to targets are usually shared, but in the Texas 3-gun championship i was scrambling to get info from other competitors.

So, for future matches I would like to supplement my equipment with a 1000 yds rangefinder.

What rangefinders should I be considering?

Any recommendations?

When I was in the market for a range finder eight years ago I decided anything less than $800 was garbage so I never bought one. Snagged a Vortex Impact 850 off a prize table last month and was pleasantly surprised to see the $200 units of today are better than the higher end products of yesteryear.

I too shot the TX3G and on that Thursday I walked to stages late afternoon and used my Nikon Black RangeX 4K. I hit all the targets just fine and was within a few yards of everyone else that lasered at the same time. Current pricing puts the model right at $450. I don't have experience with anything else. It fit my budget at the time I bought it over a year ago. But holy hell at Stage 6 where all the targets were clustered on the hill and trees. I timed out on that stage. My goal next time is to mount a pair of binos next to the range finder on a plate and carry it around on a tripod. I took notes on my phone and should have brought a pen and notepad to sketch the targets out.

I just joined this site and I'm getting an error code when I try to send a PM. I was doing some research on LPVO. I came across your posts on the C3 and was wondering if you still had a valid discount code? Probably a long shot but figured I'd try.

 

Thanks

Just checked, the code isn't active anymore. Keep an eye on them around black friday though.
