Bushnell Scout 1000.....$179.95 (after rebate)
 
 
Level more than just the playing field.
Lay'em flat from up high or down low. Amazingly compact and simple to use, our new Scout 1000 provides accurate distance from 5 to 1,000 yards with plus or minus one yard accuracy! Outstanding eye-relief of 19mm makes viewing through the 5x Multi-coated optics simple even with glasses on.  Range to a whitetail easily out to 300 yards, or to trees 600 yards away - with the tap of a single button - in a unit small enough to fit in your shirt pocket.
 
  • Features
  • Pocket-size ergonomic design
  • 5x magnification
  • Bullseye, Brush and Scan Modes
  • Weather Resistant
  • Range: 5 - 1000 yards

It is above average in its range finding ability.  It's optics are not good enough to use in lieu of a binocular, it is strictly a range finder.  It's size is small enough to carry in a pocket.  You can expect to be able to range an animal out to about 400 yards.  To range 1000 it will have to be a hard flat object like a hill side or large rock.  You can hit soft large objects like trees out to about 600.

 So in your opinion I could pick up a 36"x36" shooting target at 600 yards?  I will be trying to develop a 500 yard muzzleloading rifle and need something to range out to 500-600 yards so that I will know the ranges of my shots.  Of course it would be used to range animals like whitetails also during hunting.  I currently have a Bushnell Yardage Pro which seems to have a hard time picking up anything beyond 300 yards if that.  Just wondering if this unit is any improvement over the Yardage Pro 450

Just get you a Bad Bull, they shoot 500 yards right out of the box.  1.5" groups at 300.  Hard to beat that.  http://www.badbullmuzzleloaders.com/
 
The Bushnell Scout 1000 is a much better unit than the Yardage Pro-450, no doubt.  Hitting a 36x36 at 600 should not be a problem.  Lighting conditions and how steady you hold it also make a big difference.  What really works well is something reflective like a traffic sign.

I've got one of these and I think it works great.  I've ranged tree foliage at 550 yards and verified its accuracy at a 400 yard gun range.

Chris, is the rebate still good for the Scout 1000?  I just found this string, so this is the first I have heard of it.
