In addition to sports, forestry and other outdoor purposes, rangefinders are also used extensively by the military. They are commonly used to scout or reconnaissance an area, find military targets and aid soldiers and other active duty personnel during missions. However, militaristic rangefinders are often more sophisticated than those used in the consumer market, and they’re often combined with computers and other military technology.
Rifle Rangefinders: Rangefinders designed specifically for rifle hunting are often of higher magnification than other hunting rangefinders. While many of these rangefinders designed for rifle hunting do a scan mode, many lack an angle compensation feature that is found on a lot of other hunting rangefinders. Some of these models are also of a flatter design and are held horizontally like binoculars, instead of vertically like a monocular. This enables the hunter to hold the unit steady easier for long range targeting.
Though a particular rangefinder may say it is rated to a certain distance does not mean that is what you will get out of a rangefinder. The maximum distance rangefinders will work will be dependent on the intended object’s reflectivity and the current conditions. The maximum rated distance is what most manufactures put on the box and is figured in ideal conditions on a reflective object. On deer sized animals, you will be lucky to get 75% of the maximum range and less than ideal conditions will drop the effective range even more. This discrepancy is less with the more expensive models and greater with the less expensive models.
