New Rangefinding Binos from Leica

    When you’re hunting – especially when you’re hunting at greater distances – figuring out just how far away your target is becomes paramount. Even people who are fairly skilled at guesstimating distance like to know for sure what they’re dealing with. Speaking from personal experience I can attest to the importance of figuring out just how far away your game is in order to calculate the necessary adjustments to your optics for a clean kill (Feral hog at 1000 yards? I’d prefer not to guess.). Now there’s something new out from Leica to address this specific need: range-finding binoculars.

    The new binos are Leica Sport Optics’ Geovid-R Rangefinding Binoculars. These new binos have an aluminum housing and are designed carefully for balance to ensure ease of use for shooters. They’re being offered in 8×42, 10×42, 8×56, and 15×56. Dimensions and weight vary and are listed below. MSRP varies and starts at $1749.
