    Default Rangefinder info SIG vs Nikon

    Input on these range finders. I am looking specifically at the Nikon Prostaff 3i , and the SIG kilo 850. Nikon has been around for a while where as SIG has only started making range finders recently. It will be used primarily for archery so long distance isn't a big factor.

    My uncle was just in market for one.
    So I read up on some.
    He has had a bushnell for sometime now.
    Think 400m rated.

    He now went for a Leupold RX1200i TBR.
    The TBR is interesting. Works out MOA and even does wind correction.
    TheRX1200I even has Archery feature.
    But it was kinda pricey.

    They do have a nice 850 TBR as well.

    I however once bought a Hawke 900.
    Have been using it for Airrifle and Hunting with my 308 and 22h.
    And I am very happy with it.
    So far hasnt struggled to read targets. And has been spot on.

    It even has beeline function. Which is if you shoot at inclines or downhill.

    Does what it needs to do and has lots of features built in.

    From what I have read so far, Sig is doing very well and their optics are highly regarded.

    The Sig line of optics are very nice. I have sold a few and all my customers are happy.

    The Sig might catch fire if dropped. Or something like that.

    I have just invested in the Kilo1250. So far very happy. I am loaning it to a PH friend so he can do a thorough "field" test for me.

    Any feedback on the Kilo1250? I'm also in the market for one in that price range.

    Hi Kakhoog he says clarity is good and so is response time. The furthest he has managed to range is 575m. After that he says it starts to "struggle".

    For my hunting, predominantly bushveld, I think it will be adequate. I'm hoping to test it myself mid-September.

    Cheers
