Question for those using SIG KILO Rangefinders
« on: January 02, 2018, 11:10:51 AM »
for those of you using the kilo range finders, are they able to go low yardage for archery hunting as well? i lost my bushnell g force that did both long range and short yardage for archery hunting. i have been looking at the kilo 1250yd since they seem to have good reviews but i would like one that is capable of doing both. or should is just get another bushnell?

I have the 1250 and it works at low range too.

I think I have ranged a low as 5 or 6 yards, maybe a hair shorter once. KILO2200LRH

I was going to say I've seen 8 yards from mine. Can't recall for sure.

Mine is accurate at short yardage. Its consistantly within 1 yard on light and dark targets as well.

I use my kilo 2000 for archery and long range shooting.  It will range to single digits.

same here  :tup:
used it at the archery range and while out archery hunting, ranged accurately for long range stuff as well.
i was surprised how compact the thing was when i got it too, much slimmer in profile than my old redfield

I have the kilo 2000, I got it for archery hunting and it worked great. Ranges anything that you want but in the brush the beam seems wide so sometimes its hard to range through windows or if there is tall grass.

The main issue that I had with this unit was in snow. I hunted Montana rifle season this year and at 0 degrees it froze and I couldn't get it to range anything. I combatted this by keeping it inside my shirt.

My 2000 reads down to 4.9 yards consistently.

Ditto on the 2000. Seems to work great.
