England, Mike

For a compact rangefinder that reaches out past 1,000 yards and doesn't require two hours of prep time with the manual, check out the Leupold RX-1200i TBR/W. That's a lot of letters and numbers, for sure, but the name is as arcane as this product gets. Unlike many similar long-range devices, I was able to pull this puppy out of the box and get accurate distances right away — there are only two buttons (power and mode), so the operation is intuitive. As the nomenclature indicates, it ranges up to 1,200 yards, and the "TBR" means True Ballistic Range — an integrated automatic adjustment for elevation and angle. You can even select your rifle's caliber and bullet weight to fine-tune the reading further. What's more, this function can also be applied to your bow, at short distances, so you only need one rangefinder for both types of hunting and all types of shooting. The "W" is for wind — yep, this sucker calculates your wind-hold, too. As if all this wasn't enough, you also get 6x magnification, a grippy exterior, a durable holster, and a full two-year warranty. Leupold has been synonymous with quality riflescopes for decades, and the company is clearly poised to set a new standard in rangefinders, too. Available at Sportsman's Warehouse and Bob Ward's. $519; leupold.com
