Bushnell range finder

Has anyone used the new (newish) Bushnell G-force 1300?

I've been in need of a range finder for a long time and finally have the money for one, my mate has a Leica 1600 which works a treat, but I don't have the money for that.

Wanting a range finder that can accurately get an animal or tree out to 6, 7 8 hundred yardish, and I think the Bushnell should do that ok.

I have seen them for sale under $300.
Is there a better alternative to the Bushnell in that price?

Cheers

I have had a bushnell 500 for years and has always worked very well. I wouldn't think twice about buying another but at my age, hell, i can't see past 500 yards so my old trusty 500 is just fine.

Bushnell range finder

I looked really hard at the bushnell products and settled on a leupold rx1000i tbr with dna and have been very pleased with it. I recommend you take a peek through one. I've used it out to 580 yards with no problem. Beyond that, my hand just isn't steady enough without using some type of rest.
