Vortex Introduces the New Impact 1000 Rangefinder
The Impact 1000 is a combination of reliable performance combined with Vortex’s reputation for economical pricing. The Impact 1000 rangefinder runs off of a single CR2 battery with a total operational life of roughly 5,000 single range measurements.
The primary HCD (Horizontal Component Distance) mode provides key angle compensated range information that is required for most shooters. Why is angle compensated range important? Take for example a ranged value of 500 yards is a true shooting distance of 211 yards at a 65-degree angle. This would be even more drastic with that same 500 yards turning into 129 yards at 75 degrees. This is where an angle compensating rangefinder like the Vortex Impact 1000 Rangefinder comes in handy.

The Impact 1000 has a simple and easy to read display and offers measurements in both meters and yards (also known as freedom units). The adjustable eyecup allows you to focus the 6X magnification internal optic for pinpoint accuracy up to 1000 yards. If the HCD mode is not needed for your particular application the LOS (Line of Sight) mode will give you a straight line of sight distance measurement to within 1 meter.
The Impact 1000 comes complete with a strap, lens cloth, soft carry, CR2 battery, and a ballistic cheater card. As with all of Vortex’s products the Impact 1000 comes with their standard lifetime warranty – electronics included. More information and availability can be found on the Vortex Optics website.
