Can we get an actual Mod. number for these? I was all all but ready to order the 204101 6x 1200 ARC Legend until I read this.

Thanks this looks good but is it better than their Legend 1200 6x that has both bow and rifle compensation modes plus most everything else the 1500 offers; save the 300yrd more range. I can tell it is intended to be a higher end offering. It is typical for a company to fall just short of getting it right. I mean why would they offer superior lens coatings etc etc and then not offer the rifle and bow compensation soft wear on board camo etc. OR DO THEY? Whacko

Ballistic packages programmed into rangefinders cannot enter the wide variation of shooting conditions run into past 500 yds, temp, station pressure,bc, velocity and can only give an estimate based on a "grouping" . 
This Swaro will range to 1900 yds. and the bitterroot's comment about a supported position for reading is especially true past 1000 yds, and this is the reason some have trouble getting fast and good readings out of Swaros.

The stock # for the ARC Elite 1500 is 205101.  I find the angle compensation modes pretty gimicky myself.
