    Range finders

    So after taking a more ambitious shot than I'd realised at a Fallow Monday (still got a good clean kill) I'd like a range finder to make sure of range next time. I'm on a budget, some something around £100-£150 ideally.

    I have a Hawke that I bought to replace my Bushnell which was stolen from my car.
    The Hawke isn't too bad; advertised to be good to 400 meters (depending on the target) - cost circa £120.00

    I had one of these and was great for the money.

    Tasco Hunting Golf 400 Laser Rangefinder 8 - 700 Metres With Carry Case (RF0400) | Rangefinders | Buy Online Now!

    Must try to get it back from the person who has it!

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    +1 for Leupold 600RX. Bit over your budget but simple and compact. Some of the cheaper units like MTC, Tasco and Hawke are quite bulky.
    Plain, simple and small gets my vote.

    +1 for all the above. I picked up a Nikon rangefinder for a song - worth a look. If you're looking on Fleabay, make sure the search is in Sporting Goods and not just hunting - lots of them in Golf etc.
