Who has one and how well do they work? Some places I read articles that say they are fantastic and others I see where end users claim up to 60% of them have to go back and get lost in a terrible circle of unorganized service. Any better options $500 or so?
Only had mine in the field once. Picked up a dirt road a little over 2k, metal power line pole @800+, grass @900+, large rock @947. Worked better in cloudy conditions, couldn't pick up some of the same objects in sunlight that I did in the morning. Readily picked up anything below 700yds.
Can't say if the competition is any better since my old RF is roughly 20 years old and is only rated to 400 which is a stretch on non reflective targets in the field.
Picked mine up at Cabelas for $350 a couple weeks ago, not sure if they are still on sale.
I have upgraded from the Kilo 2000 to the Kilo 2200 this year. The old 2000 was fine and I ranged oryx out to 1650 yards and buildings out to just over 2000 yards. I helped out a buddy and sole my 2000 to him and upgraded to the 2200 earlier this fall. I have ranged houses to 2360 yards with no problems. I like the auto compensation for shooting up/down hill which can be challenging on long range shots. My primary range finder is a set of Leica Geovids and they work great out to 1200 yards but don't compensate for the angles. The Sig RF is a great backup tool for the few occasions I need longer range and/or angle info.
