It’s time; you’ve identified your target and settled on your shooting position. The only thing separating you from success – whether it’s a once-in-a-lifetime trophy elk or a 4-inch piece of steel that you’re trying to hit – is the hundreds and hundreds of yards that’s quite literally between you and your target. You need to know how far away that target is – fast – and you need to be able to trust that information. Leupold’s latest rangefinder, the RX-2800 TBR/W, delivers the unparalleled combination of accuracy and speed that will help you get the job done.
Labeled the very best rangefinder that Leupold currently offers, the RX-2800 TBR/W has been designed to deliver unmatched long-range performance. As its name suggests, it’s capable of accurately ranging reflective targets out to 2,800 yards and with a long list of useful features, it doesn’t stop there. Soft targets, like deer, other game animals and some of the targets most commonly found in long-range precision rifle competitions, can be ranged at close to 2,000 yards, leaving the RX-2800 nearly unmatched in its class.
Modern long-range rifles and ammo now reach out farther than ever and the RX-2800 TBR/W makes hitting your target at those distances easier, possible. Powered by an Alpha IQ engine, it ranges farther, faster and more accurately than any other monocular you can carry. At 7X, it’s the most powerful Leupold monocular, with the optical performance you need to pick out long-range targets. It’s built with an impact-resistant polymer armor outside and a lightweight, skeletonized aluminum chassis inside, ensuring it lives up to the legendary Leupold standard for ruggedness and reliability. It sports a high-contrast, red OLED display and offers continuous range updates in Scan Mode to keep you on target as you track movement or scan an area.
The RX-2800’s defining trait, though, is the inclusion of Leupold’s unparalleled True Ballistic Range (TBR) technology. TBR takes into account the angle of your shot and your rifle’s ballistics to put you dead on target. Other rangefinders will certainly spit out a number, but they won’t produce an accurate range to your target because they use basic trigonometry to calculate a straight-line, horizontal distance. When you’re going long, the angle matters and the RX series will deliver the information you need to ensure a successful shot.
“Despite what other brands may tell you, ballistics aren’t simply in the dial,” said Eric Overstreet, Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “If you’re going to be hunting or shooting at elevation or in any kind of mountainous terrain, you absolutely need a rangefinder that’s capable of calculating ballistic solutions at angles. The RX-2800 TBR/W delivers on that in a package that’s been designed for the hunter and shooter that refuses to fail – because it won’t, either.”
The RX-2800 TBR/W also offers a windage feature that’s the easiest way to account for wind out to distances of 800 yards. It generates a hold point for a 10-mph wind at a 90-degree angle of your aim point. And since it’s fully waterproof, you won’t have to worry about using it in adverse weather conditions.
When you’re faced with the shot of a lifetime or trying to improve your score on the precision rifle circuit, you’re going to need to know just how far away your target is and you’re going to have to trust that data. With the RX-2800 TBR/W laser rangefinder from Leupold, there won’t be any doubts.
