Loaded with Leupold’s proprietary DNA rangefinding engine, the company’s new RX-1500i TBR/W laser rangefinder is designed to be one of the most capable rangefinders in its price bracket, giving hunters and shooters distance readings accurate to half a yard.

The rangefinder also provides 6X magnification, along with True Ballistic Range/Wind (TBR/W) capability that calculates ranges for uphill, downhill or full-value winds rather than relying solely on straight-line horizontal distances.

Additional features include a bow mode allowing bowhunters to calculate arrow drop out to 175 yards, and a Trophy Scale feature enables hunters to measure the size of game in the field. The RX-1500i has a ranging capability of up to 1,500 yards on reflective targets.

The Leupold RX-1500i commands an MSRP of $299. For more information, please visit
