    I Went To Use Mine The Other day, AND U Know Battery Leakage! Time for a New One I went on line: Optics Planet.com wow what a sale, Sig,Vortex,Bushnell + others.

    I try to remember removing batteries from electronic gear and flashlights when storing for the off season. Doesn't always happen and I've lost my share due to battery leakage.

    My range finder is used so infrequently that I may not replace it when it stops working.

        Heck Treestand, you could have paced off 35 yards and saved the money! But then you wouldn't have a rangefinder for hunting with a rifle. I looked up the Vortex rangefinders on Optics Planet and on the manufacturer's site. They have two models, Ranger 1000 and Ranger 1500 at $299 ad $429 respectively.

          In case anyone doesn't need a rangefinder urgently (like Treestand) and is just thinking about replacing or upgrading, you might keep an eye out for the October issue—we're testing rangefinders for the Gear section.

                      Can't help you here. Only time I've ever used a rangefinder was on a golf course. I am fairly good at judging distances up to 40 yards(I think due to all the time spent playing baseball and football up into college) which is my limit for archery. For gun hunting I never shoot further than 100 yards with iron sights .30-30 or 200 yards with scoped 7mm mag...in both cases don't need a rangefinder to hold dead on, hah.

                        A mixture of baking soda in water applied with a toothbrush will usually clean up that battery mess.

                          Have never used one. Only ranger-finder I've used is in my socket. Though the reticle on my scopes are range-estimating.
