    I've used a Leupold VX1000 (pretty sure thats the model) its in the Bushwear catalogue for 425. Very easy to use really quick and has a scan function so you can move it around to get different ranges instantly. I managed to get out to 950m quite accurately with it. You can get them for $400 from the states if you're over that way.

    Leicas are really good, but you'd have to get a used one to compete with the price of a leupold.

    Not true DR T

    i have a couple of leica that would be very close to the leupold

    I stand corrected (and I'm clearly shopping in the wrong place) :-)

    leica lrf 800 or 900.

    and if your going out to 1000, the lrf 1200.

    love them and nout i have used has come close on the second hand market for value for money.

    and with a red led display if cool in the wee dark hours.

    Budget?

    Swarovski do a very nice 7x30 RF good for 1000m or there abouts. They also do a very nice set of Binos with a built in RF, I've had mine read just over 1300m....

    Bushnell do a RF for about 120 I believe.....
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position
