Gunwerks recently announced the company was releasing an updated version of the BR2500 Ballistic Rangefinder. Called the G7 BR2500, the new unit offers a broad range of features including the extension of its effective range beyond 2,500 yards under optimal conditions (+/- 1 yard at that range). The optic is 7x26mm.
According to the company, the rangefinder will – with the push of a single button – return measurements on range, atmospheric pressure, temperature and angle of incline or decline and then calculate a drop and wind solution based on information you’ve programmed in. Details you load into the system include G1 or G7 ballistic coefficient, muzzle velocity and zero range. The measurement and ballistics calculations will take less than 4 seconds.
Gunwerks states the data returned is accurate to within 0.1 MOA up to 1,400 yards. Solutions are provided in MOA, MRAD and BDC.
This rangefinder is made in the United States. Gunwerks states the unit is waterproof and comes with a soft carrying case and lanyard. It weighs 14.4 ounces and runs on a single CR123 battery. According to the company, the unit should run continuously for 8 hours on a single battery. That should translate to a lot of shooting one one cell.
The new G7 BR2500 Ballistic Rangefinder is now shipping. The suggested retail price on this unit is $1,599.
