- Leupold RX-1000 TBR Rangefinder Review - Part 6: Parts, Pros, Cons, and Bottom Line (this page)
- Solid compact device
- Outstanding optics
- Good battery life
- Accuracy within +/- 1 yard to 100 yards and my evaluation says +/- 1.5 yards out to 500 yards
- Easy to use functions & menus
- I have a preference for a 123A battery over the CR2. The CR2 is actually smaller and perhaps a 123A could not have fit. This is probably more of a comment than a con.
- I wish Leupold would have added some way to show the TBR MOA data to one decimal place so that I could use the 1/4 click adjustments on my scope instead of only having one MOA resolution on the data.
I'm have been very pleased with the Leupold RX-1000 TBR Rangefinder and would recommend it to anyone. It is a solid, compact, and accurate rangefinder with great optics. The True Ballistic Range (TBR) features should prove to be worth the money when on those critical hunts. As with all high tech gadgets, you need to spend some time understanding how your rifle or bow matches up to the TBR data so that you have the greatest chance of success. Also, you should remain a responsible hunter and only make shots that you feel you are skilled to make. There is a lot more to taking a 350 yard shot than just knowing the distance (i.e. rifle accuracy, shooting position, personal capability).
