Leupold’s new laser rangefinder, the RX-1600i TBR, is a moderately priced, high-quality tool that promises rifle and bow hunters a greater distance range than ever and delivers.
Every hunter who uses the bow and arrow or the rifle understands that the distance to any target is measured in yards and meters and also degrees. Looking through a scope that is not accurately sighted in by one inch at 100 yards means it’s off by 10 inches at 1000 yards. The distance magnifies the error. Today, with incredible advances in weaponry, it has become all the more important to ensure accuracy at the greatest distances our projectiles can attain.
Beyond scaled reticle riflescopes and multi-pinned bow scopes, there is a hunter’s tool that can quickly, accurately, consistently deliver the information needed to make that accurate distance shot: the laser rangefinder. Though many of these devices are too costly or too inaccurate, one has proven its worth. This review will describe the Leupold RX-1600i TBR Laser Rangefinder, list its specifications, discuss its TRB ranging, learn how it performs in the field, and how it is reviewed.
