I would like to get a rangefinder. Obviously accuracy is the utmost of importance. Lets keep a $300 max unless it is pretty close and well worth it.

I've ranged antelope with it up to 500 yards. That may not sound like much, but antelope on wide open prairies are hard critters to range. They're almost the same color as their surroundings, and not very big. I'm satisified with the one I have.

One thing to be aware of with uneven terrain, is you can accidentally range a small knob in front of your target, even though you are centered on your animal, and get a bad reading.
This can result in a missed or worse yet a wounded animal.
FWIW-I always range my target until I get multiple readings saying the same thing.

I've had this same question and have been watching the replies. I'm also looking for a decent rangefinder in the same price range and a 500yd capability would suit my needs. I've got a friend that has done a bit of long range hunting and swears by the Leopold rangefinders. The better models have a ballistic range measurement feature that corrects for shot angle. He claims that this is a handy feature that is very funtional. Is this a gimic or a truly handy feature? The Leopolds are in my price range but I don't see much mention of them, good or bad.

It is not a gimic and is a handy feature and really comes in handy in terrain like Arizona has handed me.

Hey Scott, what model Nikon do you have? I really like Nikon products. They have the quality of Leupold with a lesser price. I'm interested.

It really seems like most people enjoy Leupold rangefinders. Wondering if anyone has used the Leupold RX-1200i, I see they are on sale actually for under $300. I found one solid review on them, https://outdooropticshq.com/best-rangefinder-hunting-reviews/ but wondering if they work well from anywhere to 1200 yards or they are meant as more of a long distance range finder.
