I decided to purchase a rangefinder. The Bushnell Yardage Pro Scout looks good for $250. I'm unclear about some things. This model has a lower reflective target max distance but higher non-reflective target max (700 and 570) than the lower cheaper model (800 and 500). Which one is better? The higher reflective max, or the higher non-reflective max? Any other rangefinder info would be helpful, there doesn't seem to be much on the net.

Just about all animals I would guess were non-reflective. So I'd go with that model. :)

Steve, the regular selling price of the Bushnell Yardage Pro 800 is around $300-340. The Optics Zone has them for $299. Cabela's has a sale right now for $264. I just purchased it from Natchez's for $189.95 (black) on closeout. Right on! Posted Image

That BLACK will be much easier to find when you set it down and walk off. ;)
