Hope this is within the correct sub-forum. I did a search online and came away with very few reviews. Anyone have a recommendation of brand and model? I'm hoping to stay under $500, but willing to look higher if the quality justifies the price in your mind. Obviously, I'm considering getting one for hunting applications and would like to hear feeback on real life use. I can't see how they'd be useful in brush, but in open desert or flat land gounds, they would appear to be very valuable. Agree?

Multiple ballistics settings…True Ballistic Range (TBR®) provides accurate aiming information matched to the performance of your rifle or bow. By calculating the incline, line of sight range to the target, and a projectile’s ballistics, your RX provides rifle hunters using Leupold Ballistics Aiming System reticles as well as bow hunters the correct equivalent horizontal distance for precise shooting on an incline. In other words, aim using the True Ballistic Range, not the line of sight range. Rifle hunters can also get this data as an MOA adjustment or a holdover point. With practice, long distance/steep angle shooting will become second nature. TBR is effective to 800 yards for most rifle cartridges.
Accessories included: Cordura® holster, battery, instructions and other items. Also includes a lanyard.
