Hey
I have a Bushnell Yardage Pro Sport 450 Rangefinder. It works really well , and it is easier on your wallet then a lot of them out there.
I believe they sell for around 150.00 at Bass Pro. But , I'd say you could find them cheaper on ebay , or a discount hunting supply .

I have a Nikon 440 that reads out to 400 yards. Read the fine print on their distances though because mine will read 400 yards but that's on a reflective surface. On cloudy, overcast days it will not read that far. I bought mine primarily for bow hunting but have been using it turkey hunting as well to mark distances to trees around me so I'll know when Mr. Tom steps within 50 yards. I believe they're $199 at Bass Pro.

I like my Leica, But if buying today I would also be looking at the Nikon's and new Leupolds. You have some great options out there.

I have read that quite often on other forums as well. Lots of people happy with them...

I have the Bushnell
It works just fine for me
it doesnt have all the bells and whistles the others have like angle of trajectory and see thru rain and all that junk I dont need anyway
My bowshots are less than 30 yards and I dont bow hunt in the rain
