Default Which Range Finder?

Its time to get a range finder, I simply dont have time to be measuring off trees anymore. I am looking at the Leupold RX1 and 2 and also the Nikon Archers Choice. Anyone have any opinions on these three models? Issues?

I've never owned a Leupold, but have owned both Nikon and Bushnell. I preferred the Bushnell hands down.
I have a friend that has a Leupold, and it is a Sweet looking unit for sure.

ive got the RX-II and i like it. its got the L0S feature similar to nikons archers choice. Iv eused it target shooting (elevated) and its very close.

Also like droptine said - after 350-400 yds it gets pretty shaky. luckily my last pin only goes to 345.

Just bought a Bushnell Scout 1000 ARC and am very pleased. I will use it primarily for bowhunting but it will be fine for the ranges where I'd gun hunt as well. The inclinometer feature works well, It's crisp and clear and easy to use and the brush mode is great for shooting distance in thick woods.

PS: Cabelas has a bonus pack where they throw in a set of 10x42 binos, a medium quality knife and a realtree DVD all for $299 which is the price for the rangefinder alone anywhere else

I wont really have a problem with the 300 yard range.....Ive only got 10 1/2 acres and its rolling hills and all wooded. Im surrounded by farms on three sides and the deer use my land as a pass thru between farms and as a bedding area.

Love my 440 for bow hunting. Don't need anything more.
