The Leica CRF 1600-B features our newly developed ballistic function ABC - (Advanced Ballistic Compensation), accounts for air pressure, temperature, and angle of inclination to offer holdover values displayed in one of three output modes: 1 - provides linear holdover value in inches (or centimeters) 2 - provides true horizontal distance equivalent to target in yards (or meters) 3 - provides holdover in 1/4 M.O.A (or mil radian) We utilize the same 12 pre-programmed ballistics curves as the CRF 1600, but holdover values will now be given from 100 yards to a full 880 yards (compared to only 500 yards on the CRF 1600).

After going back and forth for a while, I decided to just go with the Bushnell because the specs seemed so similar (other than the max range) and the cost was significantly less.
That was the first rangefinder I had owned, and I have to admit that it was extremely useful. Because of that, I decided to pick up another one so both myself and my kids could use one during our spring turkey hunt.
I know I'm probably a geek with stuff like this; but, I spent quite a bit of time comparing the two units over the last several days - and have to admit that; although the Bushnell is a nice unit, the Leica is definitely worth the additional money.
Here are the main differences I found between them:
- The Leica is significantly faster than the Bushnell. In order to range anything with the Bushnell, you have to hold down the main button for 1-2 seconds while holding on the target. With the Leica, it's just point and click - with an almost instant range.
- The Leica ranges more consistently than the Bushnell. For example, the Bushnell couldn't range a cow standing broadside at 500 yards every time - where the Leica never failed that test. If a cow was facing me, the Bushnell started having troubles at around 350 yards. Interestingly enough, the Leica was easily reliable even on smaller animals (like a turkey) at that range.
- The optics with the Leica blow the Bushnell out of the water. It is noticeably brighter during the day; but, the Leica really shines when it starts to get dark. Although both units still appear to range just fine in the dark, I could still pick out objects with the Leica and could easily read the display since it is lit. It probably sounds unbelievable; but, the Leica was still usable nearly an hour after the Bushnell had been put away for the night!
At one point, I was ranging a tree in a treeline at 1000 yards. I used the Leica first and picked out a nice green tree that obviously stood out so it would be easy to locate again. Interestingly enough, I couldn't spot it using the Bushnell because the colors were several shades darker and made all the trees blend together more - even in the middle of the day. The Leica even outperformed my binoculars when it came to color and light sensitivity!
- The Leica has the same features with ballistic compensation - but they're not in the way like they are with the Bushnell. That makes the Leica far easier to use for standard ranging without feeling like you need a manual to decipher what's going on...
The Leica does have some other cool features as well, like an accurate thermometer for temperature readings, and an easy-to-use scan mode (which the Bushnell also provides).
The one thing that did cause issues at first with the Leica was the distance between the viewing reticle and the laser. When we were sitting in a blind, it was easy to sit just low enough where I could see the object I wanted to range - but the laser was blocked. Fortunately, that just took a few minutes to get used to.
Regardless, I've been extremely happy with the performance & optics in this Leica unit. If I were to go back, I would have picked up two of these since they really do perform better. The maximum distance I really ranged out to was just over 1000 yards - but the Leica still wasn't having any issues at all at that range (and that's about the farthest I need for hunting here in TX).
I would highly recommend spending the extra money if you're looking for a good rangefinder. It's hard to imagine a better product in this category - unless, it were combined into the binoculars...
