    Anyone used this rangefinder?

    I need a rangefinder for bow hunting mostly. I have an older bow that is a very accurate bow. When the deer are out to 50 to 60 yds I start to have trouble guessing the correct range.I hunt quite a few different area's.
    Now I want to buy Sig Kilo 2000.

    Its specification is:
    Magnification Range: 7x
    Finish: Matte black w/Rubber
    Objective: 25mm
    Eye Relief: 0.59? (15mm)
    Max Range: 3400 yards on Reflective targets
    1500 yards on trees
    1200 yards on deers
    Reticle: Circle with data
    Battery: CR2

    If this rangefinder could do that for me or you have any other opinion, I would be happy.
    Thanks for any opinions.

    I don't see why you would need a 1500 yd rangefinder for archery use. Also 7x is a bit much for an archery rangefinder imo. I personally use a leupold rx1000 and its 6x seems a bit high in the thickets I usually hunt. I would recommend that u take a hard look at the redfield rangefinder. I don't really know anything about the sig.

    I bought the SIG Kilo1250 last fall which is the lower priced model. So far I like it. I specifically bought it because it has an easy to use angle compensation feature which my previous rangefinder did not have. Only thing I wish that it had would be more maximum range for planning stalks. The Kilo2000 would provide that. The SIG will certainly be capable of ranging archery shots.

    The Kilo 2000 is a great rangefinder. I've used the 1600 a ton. The lasers in Sigs are the fastest and most accurate out of anything out there besides Zeiss, Leica, and Swaro.

    I bought the same SIG Kilo 1250 around Christmas when it was on sale. Way better than the Bushnell that I had.

    For archery only, you can find much cheaper models that will do the job as effectively. I also agree that 7X is higher than I would like for archery. That said, I'm sure it would do the job.

    I use a Sig KILO850. I get consistent readings up to 500 yards, which is plenty for me during rifle season since I don't take shots over 300 yards. I used to have a Bushnell Scout 1000 Arc before I lost it antelope hunting. It was a frustrating piece of equipment that wouldn't even give me consistent readings at 200 yards.

    I also just bought the kilo 2000 to replace an old bushnell. I haven't had it 2 weeks, but after looking at a ton of them decided it was the right choice for me.
