Leupold RX-IV is the one for me. 1500 yards on a reflective target, not that I shoot that far, but it's good to have the capability if I EVER need it. On a non-reflective target, I was able to range the tree line at 1081 yards not long ago. Great warranty, waterproof, shockproof, and armored. TBR feature is cool but I know my rifle's and ammo's performance so I don't use it; nothing beats live field experience!
And oh, it has 13 reticles to choose from.

Leupold must have made great advances on fixing their RX-IV because the two I tested were terrible, absolutely terrible. I had their customer service (which is very good) on my cell phone as they had me turn off all the features just to make the darn thing range objects up to 500+ yards. I'm not the only one on this site who had these same problems. One of my hunting partners has issue with his as well.

If you want a good range finder I've used both the Bushnell and Leica with great success. I hear good reports about the Swaro but very little in regards to the Zeiss. For your budget check out the Bushnell's.  Thunbs Up
