Bushnell Scout 1000 ARC Range Finder
A single button does the math. Just squeeze the trigger and remember your knife. Amazingly compact and simple to use, the Scout 1000 ARC figures distance based on terrain angle to give you an accurate “shoots-like” distance to 1,000 yards. Rifle Mode even tells you where to hold. With selectable Bow and Rifle Modes, it has the same capability some competitors need to split into two separate units. All with the tap of a button – in a vertical unit small enough to fit in your shirt pocket. In capability and ease of use, no one comes close to Bushnell.
Unmatched ballistic capability. Extreme up-and-downhill angles after true horizontal distance to your target. ARC accounts for the terrain when calculating distance, so you know precisely how to shoot the range.

A few caveats:
1. I wear both glasses and contacts and it works well with each, but I definitely prefer putting it all the way up to my eye with or without contacts. There is a much larger field of view that way. Glasses wearers, be aware of that.
2. I can't quite figure out the design of the neckstrap. Hooking it up to the unit is like any other lanyard, but the head hole itself has another two loop design, and I can't find anything about it online. Small gripe; I may just be stupid, and I can still use the strap.
3. It only gives readouts in whole yards. I have seen other range finders that give it to tenths of yards. This doesn't make a difference to me, but I was expecting the decimal.
4. The 1000 yard range is somewhat optimistic. Bow mode only goes out to 99 yards (understandably). However, to get a range beyond 800 yards in the other modes, the target must be highly reflective. In central and eastern Kentucky, we don't have many 1000 yard patches of flat space around, so it isn't a big deal, but again I would like to know that.
Regardless of these things, I gave it 5 stars for a reason:
You get a three way readout with line-of-sight distance from lens to target, the angle of that line of sight (+/- x degrees), and in bow mode you get a compensated distance (the target is 30 yards away, but given the angle you should aim as if it were 25 yards to be right on it) and in gun mode it gives you bullet drop (aim 25 inches high). The gun mode accounts for distance, angle and the type of bullet you are shooting. There is a list available on the disk in the box with the rangefinder where you find the exact round you are firing, including brand, caliber, type, and grain and it tells you which preset it corresponds to (A-J). This includes muzzleloader settings as well. There are thousands of rounds available on this list. If you buy your ammo at a sporting goods store or department, you can find it on the list. There is also a regular mode without any angle readout, but aren't you buying the ARC version of the scout for a reason? :)
Additionally, you can toggle between two settings where you can scan across an area, and the Scout will only range the farthest object you hit or the closest. Example: there is a deer you can see through a tree branch, but you cannot get the sight only on the deer and keep hitting the tree--in this mode you just scan along the body of the deer and although your laser also hits the tree branch, the Scout knows only to give you the range of the farthest object. Conversely, at a distance if you see a deer in front of a backdrop of trees or land, but the deer is too small to keep the aim on, you can scan on the deer and even if you slip off of it, only the range of the closest object (the deer) will be reported.
The optics are very clear. The 5x magnification is a good distance, and the focus control works nicely. The ranging works even better in low light than in brighter conditions. You can easily switch to meters (and centimeters in bullet drop) for all the metric fans out there. I grew up using yards, so despite the logic of the metric system, I keep using it when shooting.
All of this met my needs, and at a price of USD$240, I don't think you can beat it.
Do your research then put your hands on them before you buy, you'll be glad you did.
A flip out latch turns counterclockwise to remove the CR123 battery cover. Place the battery into the compartment, positive side down, and close the latch. This is more convenient than older models that required a coin or thumbnail to open. It's also more secure than the predecessors.
The ergonomics of this rangefinder are excellent. It's coated with rubber and has a tacky feel which works great in humidity and rain. The device is waterproof to a degree. The button on the top of the unit is also protected with a rubber housing. The option button on the side is easy to push. This can probably take a couple of hard knocks onto grass, but not a rocky terrain or concrete. It even accommodates for a bipod/tripod, if you wish.
The lens is crisp and a 5x magnification is very good in spotting targets. I use my rangefinder for target shooting in the rifle, shotgun, and handgun genre. If an object is reflective, it will work out to 1000 yards. If not, this works out to about 600-800 yards depending upon light, cloud conditions, and color of your target.
What attracted me most to this particular model over the other brands is the lower range of shooting. It goes to as close as 5 yards, unlike others that have a minimum distance of 10 yards. I set up targets at combat distances from 5 to 25 yards and this does just what I need to set up.
Upgrading from a Bushnell Yardage Pro Scout from about 5-6 years ago, I have noticed the acquisition of readings is much faster. If you're contemplating upon getting an UPGRADE from older models, this can convince you to do so. The other feature is the slope information. I shoot out to 250 yards, and the slope helps me make just the right drop for various firearms that don't have the velocity without a proper compensation of bullet drop.
The menu system allows toggling between yards and meters. You can also use this for bow or rifle.
Who is this for?
Rifle and shotgun hunters
Bullseye and competitive shooters
Golfers, not for competition
Two thumbs up.
Bushnell has created a winner that tops laser rangefinders that cost more. The size, features, range, and operation make this a solid choice.
