I use the Leopold variable 111 on several of my rifles. The crosshairs framing the 18 inch chest of a game animal with adjustments of your magnification will provide a reasonably accurate yardage by checking the markings on the other side of the adjustment ring. If I did not describe that well have a look at Leopold's web site for a better explanation. It is a great feature and when it is a common denominator on several rifles that have similar bullet trajectories you have a very effective tool. The faster you can determine bullet drop and get the shot off the better your chances of success. I have a Bushnell Rangefinder that I think is terrific in the right circumstance and the new models look even better. However, the old adage "keep it simple stupid" works for me... I don't want to be holding any tool other than my rifle when the buck of a lifetime is presenting me with a 5 second opportunity to fire the gun. I don't want to be pressing a rangefinding button instead of a trigger as the buck breaks for the woods. I do use them on stand hunts when I can sight on a number of landmarks, memorize the distances and bullets drops for each in hopes of the buck appearing near them. My point is simple, if your first impulse is to grab your rangefinder when that massive buck appears, then your chances of getting a shot, let alone killing the deer, are pretty slim.

LEUPOLD......in my humble opinion the BEST AMERICAN or at least one of the TOP brands......you really can not go wrong with this name brand.....especially when you compare the VALUE against their European counterparts.

Vortex has a reputable name; the Viper 20-60x85 is expensive and ONLY for the AVID sportsman.
For occasional recreation you will find other spotters for decent price.

I would like to look through one of the Schmidt & Bender scopes to see if they live up to all the hype.

That AR-332 is nasty. You could shoot a flea of a dog's ass at 800 meters with that thing.
